Every part of Scripture is God-breathed [Spirit-inspired] and useful one way or another — showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.
As you open your Bible, imagine the Holy Spirit standing in front of soft clay or un-chiseled marble. As you read the Scriptures, the Spirit takes those Scriptures and begins to mold you and shape you into someone beautiful. That someone is still you — just as surely as the clay is still clay and the marble is still marble — but as the Spirit works on you through the Word, you begin to resemble Jesus, more and more. You are shaped by the Holy Spirit who uses that Scripture to shape you and mold you for the life God has for you!
O Father, make me useful by your Word as the Spirit molds and shapes me into the person you want me to be. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
