The Bible: More Than a Volume of Facts 聖經豈只是事實的記錄“(2 Timothy 提摩太後書 3:14-17)

But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.


Theology is a set of facts from the Bible concerning God, man and the world. Teaching Bible doctrine for its own sake without moral application could not only be dull, meaningless and worse than no teaching at all but also lies the snare of head knowledge for both the teacher and the hearers. The Bible is a book of exhortation based upon facts about God, man and the universe. Its greater portion is devoted to persuade people to change their ways and bring their lives into harmony with the will of God. Theological truth is useless until it is obeyed. The purpose behind all doctrine is to secure moral action!


Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, thank you that you would like to speak to us day by day through the Bible. Your words tell us the truth and still have life-giving power. May you continue to shine your light into our hearts and empower us to do your will. Amen.

禱告: 親愛的主耶穌啊,感謝你願意日日如是,透過聖經向我們說話。你的話語告訴我們真理,並仍然有使人得生命的能力。願你繼續以你的真光,照進我們的心靈,並使我們有能力行你的旨意。阿們。
