“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
2 Timothy 2:15
The more time I spend in God’s Word, the more I see the importance of this advice the Apostle Paul gave to Timothy.
The Bible was written for our benefit, so we could learn about God’s nature, His commandments for living rightly, and His plan to rescue sinful mankind. We are so blessed to have this resource, and most of us spend at least some time reading and studying what’s in it.
God delights in hearing us share Scripture to comfort, teach and inspire others. But we need to be careful to study it first. We need to take in all the richness that a verse has to offer. And, most importantly, we must really understand it – not what we think it means, but what God truly meant.
I’m so grateful that God wants us to know Him so much that He provided this Book. If we use it responsibly, people will see less of us and more of our Lord, just like He intended.
