2 Timothy 4:2 – “… Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction,” (NASB).
I remember a few years back, when I first accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior, I was sitting in a Bible study listening to people share scripture and other stories. I remember feeling as if I was a part of the group, but I had nothing to share. Although the Bible has been part of my entire life, I never took the time to fully understand what it said. After that meeting, I grabbed my Bible and read with a new passion. I wanted to know what it was all about. How a young boy named David could slay a giant, how a river could suddenly wall up so people could walk through on dry land, or how a man like you and me could step out of a boat and walk on water, for a few steps anyway. The desire within me grew with each page I turned. Although my bookshelves are filled with this book and that, the Bible is my first choice. Every verse brings me newness of life or an answer to a longing question. In order to share the Word, we must first learn the Word. So I ask, “Do you know what it is all about? Are we spending time in God’s Word?”
