Fear of God Devotional: The Effect of Seeing Scripture as Sufficient

What is the effect of seeing Scripture as sufficient?

Carlton McLeod explains in this video that it is one thing to believe that Scripture is infallible and inspired, but it is another to believe that it is sufficient for all of life. In Scripture, we find everything we need for life, ministry, and discipleship. God’s Word should not be one of many guides that we turn to for guidance and direction – rather, it is the only source of wisdom and truth.  

All that we need for instruction, wisdom, and learning about God can be found in Scripture. Scripture is sufficient in that it requires no adding or removing of certain sections for it to be both relevant and authoritative today. 

Deuteronomy 12:32 (NKJV) – “Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.”
