2 Timothy 3:17 ICB: Using the Scriptures, the person who serves God will be ready and will have everything he needs to do every good work.
My dear friend in Christ, today’s message is a reminder to us that the scripture is all we need to be fully equipped for the work of God here on earth. It is God’s manual for every believer. The Bible records that the scripture is inspired by God for reproof, corrections and how to live a godly life in Christ.
The scripture records the mind of God for the man. When we spend time studying the scriptures, we will become acquainted with what God really wants from us. When we don’t spend time with the scriptures, we will always run into confusion as to what God wants us to do at certain points in our lives.
Today, our world is full of distractions that will keep you far away from spending time with the scriptures. Do not be carried away by the distractions. Technology has made it easier for you to take the scriptures along with you wherever you go. Deliberately schedule a time when you will suspend everything and go through the scriptures. Doing this will keep you from getting carried away and grow in the knowledge of God.
Declare to yourself loud: I will study until I am fully equipped for good works.
Lord Jesus, guide me through the scriptures as I learn of you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
