Word Up!

2 Timothy 3:16,17

All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 4:2-4

Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke, and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine.  Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.  They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

God has laid everything out for us to know the way, to know what HE wants from us, and HE has laid out what we are to tell to someone else.  This is all wonderful, but we still need to know our Word.  SO many are picking and choosing what they will believe and what they will teach.  And there is no such thing as partial truth. It is a truth or a lie.  God knows we do not understand completely everything HE has written.  But we are responsible, each one of us, to go to the Word and ask HIM for understanding and wisdom, for application. 

I know we all fall into complacency with studying our Word, but this is urgency!  We need to know it, we need to apply it, and we need to stand firm on it.  SO many doctrines, so many come close and then fall apart.  Don’t be duped…with a small amount of truth…God is 100% truth, even when we don’t understand.  Get in your Word, talk to the only one who knows it well (the author), and get ready…Jesus is coming!!  WORD UP!
