You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, persecutions, sufferings–what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 2 Timothy 3:10-11
Paul is a great example of a servant of Christ, he suffered many beatings, thrown in jail many times, they even tried to stone him to death, but God kept delivering Paul. No weapon formed against him would prosper; he truly walked the walk as he talked the talk.
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:12-13
Jesus told us we would be hated because of him, think about it Satan is going to go after the Christians who truly threaten his Kingdom. The more you Glorify God the more Satan is going to attack you. So you can take comfort and joy knowing you are doing the Will of God enough to make Hell hate you. While Heaven is glorifying your name and God will deliver you.
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:14-15
Why is it important to study the Word of God everyday? Because God has giving us this gift of Wisdom that will make us wise beyond our years. Only this wisdom can be obtained from The Bible, as we don’t read the Bible, the Bible reads us. If you say God never speaks to you, it’s probably because you never read the Bible.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Bible is a Gift from God giving to us by the Holy Spirit. God used man to write the words but the words were sent from God. The Word of God is like a double-edged sword that cuts to the heart, because its truth. People of Evil flee from it while the Holy thirst for more.
Embrace the Word of God, learn and live it. It breathes life into the dead and gives justice to weak. See what God has to say to you today in Jesus Name Amen
