2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
This is a passage of scripture that I am familiar with but was recently a focus of my sister and brother-in-law’s Life Group at their church in Tennessee. When this scripture was presented, I thought about how important it is that my husband and I are equipped to teach and train our family about God and his word. As a teacher, the number one thing that I do for my students to understand what I want them to learn or how to act is to model (teach), practice (train) and correct. This is something I need to take and apply to my personal life. It is our job to TEACH IN RIGHTEOUSNESS what being in God’s word looks and sounds like. It is our job to TRAIN IN RIGHTEOUSNESS by reading and living out God’s word daily. It is our job to CORRECT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS in those times where we get off track.
To help me with this goal, my sisters and I are using the Bible App to go through the Bible Chronologically. My sister, Melissa, created a group for us within the app where we are able to view and discuss our daily readings with each other. Personally, I feel doing this study with a group is important for accountability and reflection. Since I talk to my family daily, we have a quick discussion on the passages we focused on.
I am excited for what we will learn and how we will grow. Now, if you are not a big reader like me, then you can have it read to you. I can listen to it while getting ready, in the car, etc… NO EXCUSES!
