Today’s devotional meditation is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15, which says,
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the Word of truth.“(ESV).
In a day and time when false teaching was at an apex, Apostle Paul commanded Timothy to give maximum effort in his study of God’s Word, in order to make sure that his presentation of the truth was without error. He would stand approved unto God.
We are living in times where you have those who do not rightly handle the “Word of truth,” at all. They present false distortions of the Word, that is ultimately lead people to hell. Paul’s command to Timothy is for us today. If we want to escape being drawn away from the truth, we must make sure that we are giving our maximum effort to rightly understanding the Word of God. If you are lazy in seeking to know what God’s Word is saying, you are in danger of being led astray.
These are vicious times in the spiritual battle that is taking place today. I cannot appeal to you strongly enough to take seriously your need to know the Scriptures and to be able to keep them in context. If anyone is not currently sitting under sound teaching, it is time to do so now. Please do not take offense, if Satan deceived Eve, what makes you think he can’t deceive you?
God be with you,
