It is not debatable: The Scripture is God’s Word. Consequently, we take it seriously. Bible scholars say the Word of God is “inspired”—like God breathing out His wisdom. Like Jesus’ teaching to His disciples—and to you, and to me.
Technically, the verb “to inspire” is the act of God bestowing wisdom or skill on individuals. It refers to the Holy Spirit guiding Christ-followers to spiritual joy and service in the Kingdom of God in ways that strengthen your whole church and mission.
It’s an interesting word that Scripture uses: “inspire.” It is more than head knowledge and way beyond human intellect. It is described as God-breathed. God exhales supernatural wisdom for my life—and yours—and for your church. Second Timothy 3:16-17 (TEV) says, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living.” The Message translation says, “Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful, one way or another—showing us the truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way.” It’s fascinating the way The Message continues in verse 17: “Through the Word, we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”
