Profitable for Correction

by Roby Ellis          SPANISH/ESPAÑOL

[Scripture Reading: Psalm 119:65-68]


A. There are a lot of people who can tell you what is wrong with the world, but who holds the key to setting things right?

B. God’s Word is the only source we can use to rebuke the world of sin, and in it we also find the positive message that the world needs to get on the right track.

I. The great reformers all relied on God’s Word for correction.

A. When David saw he had done something wrong, he went to the Law to make it right (2 Samuel 6:8-9; 1 Chronicles 15:2,13).

B. When Josiah realized Judah had been rebellious, he went to the Word to set things straight (2 Kings 22:11-13; 23:2,21).

C. Ezra and Nehemiah pointed the returned exiles back to God’s Law (Ezra 3:4-5; 6:18; 7:10; Nehemiah 8:1-8).

II. When we need to correct someone or stand in need of correction ourselves, we need the Bible.

A. Peter corrected the penitent group at Pentecost using the Word (Acts 2:38; cf. Acts 18:26-27).

B. The Bible is profitable for correction in our homes (Ephesians 6:4; Deuteronomy 6:6-9).

C. The Bible is profitable for correction in the church (2 Thessalonians 3:6; Galatians 6:1-2).


A. Is there anything amiss in your life? Will you read God’s Word and trust Him enough to listen to what He tells you to do?

B. Jesus says that he is a wise man who will listen to His words and obey them (Matthew 7:24-27).
