2 Timothy 3:16

Pastor Tony Pyle walks us through 2 Timothy 3:16 as we go through our Talking With God series.

Watch Watch
Listen Listen

The instruction of the Lord is perfect,
renewing one’s life;
the testimony of the Lord is trustworthy,
making the inexperienced wise.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
making the heart glad;
the command of the Lord is radiant,
making the eyes light up.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
enduring forever;
the ordinances of the Lord are reliable
and altogether righteous.
They are more desirable than gold—
than an abundance of pure gold;
and sweeter than honey
dripping from a honeycomb.
Psalm 19:7-10
All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Wasn’t it necessary for the Messiah to suffer these things and enter into his glory?” Then beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted for them the things concerning himself in all the Scriptures.
Luke 24:26-27
Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7
Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in everything; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
He often withdrew to deserted places and prayed.
Luke 5:16

God praying is at once both duty and delight, but often we must begin where prayer is primarily duty. As we grow in the knowledge of prayer and in the patience of praying, however, God will sanctify our efforts and delight will come upon us.
- JI Packer

Think about the various relationships you have in your life. Which one(s) are the most meaningful? How did they get to that point?

What word would you use to define the relationship between prayer and scripture? Are they strangers, acquaintances, friends or family? Why?

Read Luke 5:16. How is Jesus an example and encouragement to us in how we should view our prayer lives intersecting with Scripture?

What is one step you would like to take to cultivate this relationship between prayer and Scripture? Who are you going to share this with?
