And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:19-21 ESV)
Hymn ELH 232:1,6 How Precious Is the Book Divine
How precious is the Book Divine,
By inspiration given!
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine
To guide our souls to heaven,
To guide our souls to heaven.
This lamp through all the dreary night
Of life shall guide our way
Till we behold the clearer light
Of an eternal day,
Of an eternal day.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the sure and certain Word, which You have given to all people. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
