All Scripture is . . .

All - Do you believe that ALL Scripture is profitable? If you don't, why are you teaching the Bible?

Inspired and profitable - It is not just information from God; it is profitable information for . . .
  1. Teaching - Instructs us on what to do.
  2. Rebuking - Shows us what we are doing wrong. 
  3. Correcting - Directs us on how to stop doing wrong. 
  4. Instruction in Righteousness -Helps us avoid doing wrong again.

so that

the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
  • Design your Bible studies around these four elements. 
  • Measure your effectiveness in teaching based on how these four elements are taking place as your group encounters God's Word.
  • Observe to see if your teaching is leading to productive believers who are equipped for every good work.
