πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ For What Saith The Scriptures?

β€œFor what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness” (Romans 4:3).

A question rarely asked in Christian circles, β€œWhat saith the scripture?” is found twice in the Bibleβ€”today’s Scripture, and Galatians 4:30, β€œNevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.”

God’s will for our lives is summed up in 1 Timothy 2:4, β€œ[God our Saviour] Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” There are two issues hereβ€”soul salvation from sins and everlasting hellfire, and soul salvation from false teaching unto sound Bible doctrine. Firstly, God wants everyone to become Christians by trusting in and relying exclusively on His Son Jesus Christ and His finished crosswork at Calvary as sufficient payment for their sins. Secondly, God wants Christians to trust in and rely on the grace doctrines found in Paul’s epistles, Romans through Philemon.

Amazingly, both occurrences of β€œWhat saith the scripture?” have a special application to usβ€”each instance correlates to one of the issues in 1 Timothy 2:4! The question β€œWhat saith the scripture?” in today’s Scripture uses the Bible to answer the question of soul salvation from sins and everlasting hellfire (faith instead of works, β€œall men to be saved;” 1 Timothy 2:4). The question β€œWhat saith the scripture?” in Galatians 4:30 uses the Bible to answer the question of soul salvation from false teaching unto sound Bible doctrine (grace instead of legalism, β€œcome unto the knowledge of the truth;” 1 Timothy 2:4).

Bible Verse for 11/11/19

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. — 1 John 2:15-16
