Today’s scripture: 2 Timothy 2:1-2
We learn so that we can teach and encourage others. God inspired the pens of
men to leave us a rich and wonderful book of lessons and stories and examples
of godly men and women. As we read the Bible, we learn more of who God is and
what He expects of us.
We learn of His grace and mercy and love. We learn of His righteousness and
justice. We learn of His plan of salvation.
And as we learn, we internalize and become more like Christ.
Then we can share God’s truths with others. We can help them know God and His
plan for their lives. You don’t have to be a Bible scholar to tell people that
God loves with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3). That He is their Shepherd and
Protector (Ps. 23). That He will never leave them or forsake them (Heb. 13:5).
That He never changes (Heb. 13:8). That He is greater than any enemy or threat
(1 John 4:4).
The Bible and its truths will change lives. If it’s changed yours, then teach
it to others. It’ll change their lives as well.
