“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17, NLT)
The word of God is many things, but it is not able to help us to become what God wants us to become without our cooperation.
We cooperate with God when we take time to read, to study, and to meditate on His written word. Nothing else prepares and equips us for every good work! Resist all diversions, and accept no substitutes. – Luther
