“Scripture contains all the words of God we need to be redeemed and to live the abundant life he has called us to live as his children.”

We all look to various different voices and authorities to help us live what would consider the “abundant life.” While we know that we need God’s Word to learn about how we might be forgiven, redeemed, and saved, we also usually assume that we need something else to help us truly live. This “Bible-plus” mentality waters down our journey as disciples and routinely crowds out the transformational truth that truly is all we need. We need to be reminded again and again, that God’s Word truly is sufficient for all we need.

Application Questions

1. What sources of information, other than Scripture, do you turn to in pursuit of an abundant life?

2. In what ways is the Word of God sufficient for your various callings?

3. In what ways are you tempted to doubt the sufficiency of the Word of God?

4. Do you tend to treat the Word of God as an end in itself, or as a way to get to know and relate to God?

5. How might you need to grow in hearing from God in his Word?
