The scripture for today, February 15 is 2nd Timothy 2:15 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
Eventually we will all present ourselves to God. We can do it as an honored worker ~ someone who does good works and spreads the gospel and is not ashamed to do them.
We can also present ourselves to God as one who reads the Word of Truth (the Bible) with an open and honest heart. Pilate who crucified Jesus once said, “What is truth?” Today people still ask that question. But we don’t have to guess. God gave us the answers. It is all written down.
If you have a Bible with a concordance or index in the back, you can look up certain key words and find out for yourself what the Word of Truth says about any subject. It’s easy to “correctly handle the word of truth.” It is not for others to tell us, but for God himself to tell us. This way we get it first hand, and that’s a lot easier.
