The Right Way to Use a Bible
What will it take to be able fulfill the mission God has given every Christian? How will be able to endure? In 2 Tim 3:10-4:6, Paul reminds Timothy of a resource that every Christian needs to be reminded of: the Word of God. For Timothy, "the Word of God" included the written words that we call the Old Testament (Timothy's Scriptures) and the teachings of Jesus passed down from the disciples. Today, we have both of these in the Bible.
In the US, 92% of all households have a Bible somewhere on their shelves, but what good is having one if you don't use it properly? The truth we see revealed in this passage in 2 Timothy is that, if we use it like God intended, our Bible can have spiritual effects on us, changing our outlook in life, our ability to live, and even our eternal destiny.
