The Value of God’s Word
Read 2 Timothy 3:14-17
“And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (v. 15).
Have you ever learned a skill you were not too interested in following? I recently helped a general contractor install a large recreational vehicle park. I learned to operate some heavy equipment, install plumbing, and do earth moving work. At the close of the project, I mentioned to the fellows who had taught me, “Hope I never need these skills again.”
There are areas of life though that we need! Not every believer is wise regarding finances, or relationships. Every Christian, who knows the Word of God, is wise regarding his eternal hope. Paul is encouraging Timothy to understand that the Scriptures give clear and strong teaching regarding salvation by faith in Christ. (G. Clair Sams)
I know not why God’s wondrous grace
To me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love
Redeemed me for His own.
But “I know Whom I have believed,
And am persuaded that He is able
To keep that which I’ve committed
Unto Him against that day.”
— Daniel W. Whittle
