The Precious Word

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).

Nothing provides a source of genuine comfort like the written word of God. And nothing instructs us better on how to live a meaningful and fruitful daily Christian life. But keep in mind that the Holy Bible is not simply a sound literary piece designed for our reading pleasure and mental stimulation. Nor is it a spiritual resource to help us acquire personal happiness and temporal prosperity. God the Father, who is the vinedresser, will use the shears of His word to develop and cultivate His fruit in our life. God often uses the shears of His word to prune and purge our lives; to straighten us up. We don’t like it very much when the word of God cuts away those unruly thoughts, empty words, or fruitless deeds but it’s for our own good. The word of God gives life and provides spiritual nutrition for genuine and abundant growth.
