The Word of God is so important. God speaks to us through His Word. For the person who loves God, there is something so powerful about the Bible, because God guides us, encourages us, and shoes us His will for our lives.
It’s good to teach kids at a young age how to learn and know the Bible. Timothy was taught at a young age, he was raised knowing the Word of God, and that is part of what made him strong as a pastor. The Word of God gives us strength, even when we have to suffer for doing what is right for God. And even if we weren’t raised knowing the Bible, we can spend our time everyday learning more about the Bible, and studying the Bible and knowing God through His Word more and more.
One of the most important commitments we can ever make is to grow in the Word of God, to make time in the Bible a regular habit. That commitment can change everything in our lives as we walk with the Lord.
2 Timothy 3:10-17
10But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is. You know my faith, my patience, my love, and my endurance. 11You know how much persecution and suffering I have endured. You know all about how I was persecuted in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra—but the Lord rescued me from all of it. 12Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13But evil people and impostors will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.
14But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you. 15You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. 16All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 17God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
