1. JUST THINKING ABOUT IT 2. This we know: 2 Timothy 3:16All Scripture isinspired by Godand profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousnessInspired=God breathed ( Theos + pneo ) God + to breathe or wind That being the case: Would we be better off if the we depended on the same thing that inspired those writers of scripture to write the scriptureto help us understand the same scripture rather than leaning to our own understanding? 3. Weve all probably read this countless times: Galatians 2:20 Ihave beencrucified with Christand I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.

If our lives are also on the cross with Christ, does it make you think of how slow death on the cross really was? 4. The question isWHY do you do what you do?

John 10:27 Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. Matthew 5:8 For she thought, "If I just touch His garments, I will get well." Mark 5:28 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. 2 Corinthians 2:14
