2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
We are shown that the disciples were engaged in God’s word with a new fervor and dependence in Acts 1. They drew their direction, formation, and decisions based upon God’s word. Scripture went from being something they had heard all their lives, to now being the very lifeline they depended upon. This is another clear way that the disciples were engaging the majestic in the mundane of their lives. Where God’s word was now directing and forming the community.
We’ve also experienced much transformation, direction, and leading through God’s word. For it is through God’s word that we are taught how to view one another—in love and through the gospel; how to view the world—in compassion; how to view our past mistakes, our future hopes, and how to make decisions of life. All within the biblical framework, and not based upon our old fears, prejudices, thoughts, but through the gospel. God’s word brings the majestic into the mundane.
Today pray through 2 Timothy 3:16-17 and ask for deep healing, correction, and transformation through the word over the mundane areas of your life.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, we thank you that your word teaches us, rebukes us, corrects us, and trains us in righteousness. As we engage your word, breathe afresh your truth in our lives. In Jesus’ name, amen.
