THE WORD OF GOD (2)
Read: 2 Timothy 3:16-17
“That the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:17)
What does the word of God do for you?
The word of God saves your soul. James 1:21 says “Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls”. Psalm 19:7 says “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul”
It builds up your faith. Romans 10:17 says, “so then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”.
It makes you wiser than your peers. Psalm 119:99-100 says “have more understanding than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients because I keep Your precepts”. Psalm 19:7 says, “the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple”.
It reveals who you are. Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.
It builds you up and guarantees your inheritance amongst the saints. Acts 20:32 says, “so now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified”.
It guarantees your victory thereby making you an overcomer. 1 John 2:14 says, “I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one”.
Lastly, you can find answers for every issue you encounter in life. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says “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.
IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?
He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.
Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
