2 Timothy 3:14-17

Our devotions this Easter season come from members of Faith Lutheran Church. Today’s writer is Brent Lamb.

But as for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it, and how from childhood you have known the sacred writings that are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:14-17

Paul is speaking to Timothy in these verses and he reminds Timothy what he has been taught about God.  Today, we need to read and study scripture to reveal God’s person, God’s power, God’s promises, and God’s plan.

Paul writes that “all scripture is inspired by God.”  It is a guide for us for teaching our children and others about righteousness.  Studying these words make Christians “proficient and equipped for every good work.”  Through our knowledge of these “sacred writings” and our “faith in Christ Jesus” we will have the tools necessary for living a Christian life.

Let us pray: Heavenly Father, during this season of Easter, thank you for reminding us of your inspired words found in scripture to guide us in our daily lives to be your light in this world.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
