2 Kings 10:1-36; Jeremiah 45:1-47:7; Hebrews 12:1-17

All scripture is given by inspiration of God. 2 Timothy 3:16

The skirmishes in the defense and confirmation of the gospel
are many. Since Eden the enemy attacks the trustworthiness of
God’s Word. “Yea, hath God said?” (Gen. 3:1). Is the Bible authoritative?
Is it divinely inspired? Is it infallible? Is it inerrant? Each
time the challenges are answered, the enemy regroups, retools and
rewords the attack. We stand on an old battlefield. God help us to
grip tightly the sword of the Spirit. —J. A. Bjorlie

O may I love Thy precious Word, may I explore the mine,
May I its fragrant flowers glean, may light upon me shine.
O may I find my armour there, Thy Word my trusty sword;
I’ll learn to fight with every foe the battles of the Lord.
—Edwin Hodder
