2 Tim 3:17 …thoroughly equipped for every good work.
You would hardly go fishing with a motorcycle helmet and a set of golf clubs. You don’t wear cleats and a carry a briefcase to play basketball.
Whether you’re fishing, playing basketball, cooking, going to school, or leading praise & worship in a church – you will use the right equipment.
Likewise, the follower of Jesus must be thoroughly equipped! It is more than just owning a Bible – you must know what it says and apply it to your life.
Adding worldly philosophy, doctrine, and ideas is like fishing with a helmet – it’s just wrong.
The full verse says all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Tim 3:16-17
To base your belief in God on anything less OR more than scripture is just wrong!
Only God’s word can thoroughly equip you today!
Abba, Your word is truth and convicts my heart as well as fills me with joy. I am thoroughly equipped. Your word takes away despair and gives me hope. I am thoroughly equipped. In Jesus’ name, YES&AMEN
