2 Timothy 3:16-17
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction…
The superiority of man is everywhere manifested on earth. True greatness is measured by character.
I. TO PERFECT THE CHARACTER OF MAN IS THE AIM OF CHRISTIAN TRUTH.
II. IN DEVELOPED CHARACTER IS TO BE FOUND THE GREAT MORAL RICHES OF THE WORLD.
III. IN IT WE HAVE A STRIKING PROOF OF MAN'S IMMORTALITY.
IV. IT SUPPLIES A TEST BY WHICH TO MEASURE THE VALUE OF THE SERVICES OF THE SANCTUARY, THE VALUE OF THE BIBLE, OF ALL THINGS — ITS ABILITY TO DEVELOP TRUE MANHOOD. Have we grown in Christian character? Have the Church services proven barren or fruitful to us?
(R. S. Storrs, D. D.)
