2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV

The word of God is vital in our relationship with the Lord.  God’s word is inspired by God Himself.  His word is infallible and it is the standard of truth we have in this world that is filled with deception and lies.  It is impossible to discern the lies and deceptions of the enemy if we fail to understand truth.  The only way to recognize a lie is to know what truth looks like.

God’s word has many different purposes.  His word is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, and that the man of God would be thoroughly equipped for every good work.  Those who attend churches where the word of God is compromised do themselves a disservice.

We are transformed by the truth of God’s word.  When we come to Christ our minds are bound by the lies and deceptions of the enemy.  As we diligently study the word of God each day it is the word of God that cuts through every lie and deception of the enemy.  May we invest diligently in the study of God’s word.  May we make seeking the Lord the priority of our lives.  We are simply called to seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness.
