2 Timothy 3:10-17

What gets you through the day? What gets you through the crisis? What helps you when you feel tired, alone, or blue? We are inundated with scores of remedies for the pressures of life. Just put your “issue” on your Facebook status and you’ll have more advice than you know what to do with. Google your dilemma and you will find thousands of “hits” for help.

Paul went through tough times. Struggles? He knew all about that. Importantly, it was the Word of God that got him through. Paul affirms that the Bible is not just some person’s sage advice. It is the Word breathed by God himself.  This is the Word of the Creator. There is power in the Word of the Lord. Paul says in Romans: “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope” (15:4).

Paul’s discovery in the school of hard knocks? The Word of God is useful; very useful.
