Recently, I found myself scripture praying 2 Timothy 3:16-17 prior to ministering the Word and at the conclusion of the prayer asking God to let the Word work in the heart and the minds of the hearers. And now I once again feel an urging to write about the the Word. Since I knew I had written on this topic before, I reviewed past blogs and decided though I may say some of the things I blogged on in the past, it is worth repeating.

This well-known scripture penned by the Apostle Paul to his spiritual son Timothy states, “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 perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). I also love the way the Message Bible interprets these verses. It states, “Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”

God moved on the writers of the Old and New testament to record events and information that He felt was pertinent for humanity. Additionally, no matter the age or time in which an individual may live this Word would provide them with the answers and direction that was needed for their lives.

If we allow it the Word will accomplish five things in our lives and these things are:
1. The Word gives us the laws, rules, and principles that when applied to our lives guarantees success.
2. When we are out of order and doing wrong the Word will reprimand us, check us, and get on us. We will feel convicted.
3. When we persist in doing the wrong thing, we will be punished. Prayerfully this punishment will lead to our rehabilitation.
4. The Word will give us the direction and answers to questions that effect our lives and world.
5. The Word builds us, equips us and makes us spiritual champions.

Today, I am so grateful that I have a God in my life that is always with me, provides me with the tools that I need to navigate through this world, corrects me when I need it and wants me to be successful. If you have not utilized the Word in your everyday life I encourage you to do so, for you are missing out on one of the greatest bestowal that God has given to mankind.
