Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 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. All Scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for Doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of GOD may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (2Ti 3:12-17)
GOD has given us His Word on it, and His Word is true. His precepts are right, His Commandments are pure, His testimony is sure, and His Law is perfect. Though written by men, from Adam to John, these men led by the Spirit of GOD, wrote of their experience and encounter with GOD and every Word is pure, tested in the fires of this sinful and broken world, and settled in Heaven, that we may know Him through its pages. We trust its teachings, for they teach us of Jesus Christ, without error. We learn from its reproofs, and renew our thinking about our GOD. We adjust our behaviour by its examples, as He corrects us. We live by its instructions, rightly dividing the Word of Truth and turn to its pages for comfort and peace, just as we did for Salvation.
Through it we are equipped unto every good work, even if many will not hear it. We reach out in ministry to those who are hurting and in need because it commands us to love our neighbour as ourselves, and because this world doesn't know what love is unless we live it. We fellowship, forgive, and disciple one another because it commands us to love the members of His Church as He loved us, that all may know we are His people. We proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ from its pages, because of His love for us revealed to all who will hear in His Word, and as we go, living the Gospel we preach, we tell others of the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and trust in Him for His grace and mercy that leads to eternal life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
