2 Timothy 3:16 says that “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness”.
We will learn about this verse so that we will be equipped better in this life.
1. ALL SCRIPTURES
Even though it is only two words but it is very powerful. God says “ALL SCRIPTURES”, not one, not some but all of the Word of God is what we need. Don’t pick and choose and leave out parts of the Word of God which we like to do according to our mind and benefit or what makes us feel good. But learn and read and apply all of it.
2. Is breathed out by God
Our God the creator never leaves us nor forsakes us. This is the proof, He leaves us with a book to live out our lives, to find His will so that one day we can be together with Him. It is His Words for us, so meditate on it.
3. And profitable for teaching
All Scriptures can be used for teaching for anyone at any age. It will apply to all according to our relationship and faith to God. It will teach us so much every single day. There is no one can do it for us, we ourselves have to spend the time and learn from His teachings.
4. For reproof
The Word of God causes us to repent. God forgives us and welcome us with His open arms and grace and we should do the same to everyone. We should not judge them but show that God is love and His Words are mighty to save them too.
5. For correction
We are called to use all the scriptures to correct our lives. There are so many things to correct. We are too prideful and think that we are good person. We need to focus on scripture in order for us to be Christ centered and correct our ill behavior and thoughts.
6. For training in righteousness
Righteousness – the state of moral perfection required by God to enter heaven. Use the scriptures to change our characters to become the image of God that He created us in the beginning. Not any other self righteous book or worldly speakers. But God and His Words only to train us.
Lord Jesus, thank You for giving us Your Words to help us live this life to become more like You. Lord, keep teaching me and correcting me so that the path that I walk is Your path and I will become more and more like You every single day. In the Name of Jesus I pray.
