“And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise
unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” 2Timothy 3:15
If you must serve God with all your heart, faithfully and be ready to make it on the last day, there are things that you will suffer because there are things that will make you to almost compromise your faith. It is not going to come easy. This is the challenge of the last days. There are so many compromisers in the body of Christ today. You may be singing and clapping but I want you to find out if there is any area you are compromising today. Is there any sign of compromise in your life?
2 Timothy 3:13 says, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse.” It says evil will become greater. It won’t reduce. It says, “Deceiving and being deceived.” But Paul admonished Timothy saying, “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them.” Why? “……That from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures.” What are those things you have known from childhood? That means God’s word works every day under any circumstance or situation. You must never turn your back on it simply because there is pressure.
The scripture is what will make you wise and to rise above the wisdom of this world. If you function like the average person you see on the street, then you are not wise. The bible has the answer to all the challenges of life but most Christians see it as a religious book. It has all the answers. It is the book of life. Some of us are falling prey to the enemy because we are not wise. Do you continue in the word? Paul said it is the scripture that makes you wise. Why does it make you wise? It is because the world does not understand it. It doesn’t make sense to the world.
