All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip His people to do every good work.------2 Timothy 3:16-17
How can a person, who is a Child of the Living God, expect to be a FAITHFUL, TRUSTWORTHY, PRODUCTIVE servant, if they aren't READING and STUDYING their TRAINING MANUEL (the Bible), God's Book of Instructions, on how we, His Children, and Servants are to conduct ourselves?
We need to be capable to TEACH others the TRUTH of His Word, and to correct the wrong that so easily besets us. It is THE TRAINING TOOL that God uses to PREPARE and EQUIP His Children to do EVERY GOOD WORK. So we need to NOT just READ His Word, the BIBLE, but we NEED to STUDY and KNOW what it says about how we should LIVE and SERVE the TRUE and LIVING GOD. To be the FAITHFUL, TRUSTWORTHY, and PRODUCTIVE servant that He has called us to be.
If you have never given your heart to Jesus and are not part of His Family, you are living a LIE, because the TRUTH is in His Word and I would venture to say you are NOT STUDYING, much less READING His Word, and are unaware of the REAL TRUTH of life, but you can be aware by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He's waiting!!!
