Trained In Righteousness

"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." - 2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

Opinions are breathed out by man but scripture was and is spoken by God and it is good for fixing us and equipping us. Truth is eternal. It is very old but ever new at the same time.

Training is so vital. Anyone practicing a profession can get something out of a good training session. But, It must be a good training session. Experts will tire quickly of sessions that they could teach themselves taught by novices.

Scripture isn't written by a novice. Scripture has depth and well as width. It is the length and height of love. It is shaped like mercy. It is as beautiful as any mathematical equation is to a mathematician. We don't outgrow scripture. We grow into it.

Human beings crave newness. We can easily enter into, 'Oh, That again.'

Training in righteousness teaches us the loftiest of lessons. We learn to love. We learn to forgive. We are instructed on reaching out. A good lesson will teach me to be quiet and let my actions speak.

When I am Spirit taught my instructor leaves me in awe because He reveals what can't be seen by merely mortal eyes.

Instruction like this prompts us to believe God. It takes our eyes off of ourselves and seeing people as sources of provision. We have all that we need when we believe in the One who can do all things.

We can mix faith with true Biblical instruction. We can be Spirit led and taught this week. It is not business as usual. God is here and anything is possible to those who believe (see Mark 9:23).
