Episode 27: Are God's Words Enough for Our Life?

Is the Word of God sufficient? Is it lacking any information or directives we need for this life?  Does God give extra-biblical revelations? We are going to discuss why the Bible is enough for everything there is to do with life and godliness. Plus identify three struggles that sometimes cause us to look to outside sources.

The Bible Is Sufficient for Life

2 Timothy 3:14-17

1 Peter 1:3-4

The Bible is useful to instruct us in this life - including the basic fundamental understanding about God, our condition, and our purpose.

The Bible teaches us:

  1. Who is God?
  2. What is man's condition?
  3. How does God save man?
  4. How should man live?

Ephesians 2:1-10 is a great summary of these fundamental instructions.

Three Struggles we have with the Sufficiency of Scripture:

  1. Discontentment of our life and calling
  2. Not understanding our purpose through a lack of knowledge of the Word of God
  3. Our hearts are idol factories and we are attracted to worship other things
