Scripture: 2Timothy (NIV) 3:16 All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Observation: God’s plan is that Christians grow in the knowledge and application of the scriptures, His Word, The Bible. Doing so will result in the believer becoming useful in doing good works. We are not saved by our works, but by His “work” on the cross. We are not saved BY our works, but we are saved TO work.
Application: By God’s word I am equipped for every good work that comes my way as His servant. When I refuse to work or serve in the body of Christ I am not useful to the Kingdom. I am wasting what God has given me. I am not living up to the potential God has placed in me. Simply put, I am not very Christ-like. Jesus “went around doing good…” Acts 10:38.
Prayer: Lord, Make me more like you; may your Word not be wasted in my life. May I share your love with others by serving them. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
