2 Timothy 3:17 says that God uses the Bible to prepare and equip His people to do every good work. If we’re not studying and applying His word to our lives we are neither prepared or equipped to do what He has called us to do OR to be fully satisfied in Him. It’s like putting on armor. As Christians we need to prepare ourselves daily to face whatever Satan’s going to throw at us and to obey whatever God has commanded us to do. In order to live the life that God has destined for us with freedom, joy and true fulfillment we have to be prepared and equipped so that we can do “every good work” that God intends for us to do. It is a sacrifice to take time out of our busy schedules to meditate on His word but if we don’t we will not be ready to step into what God has for us.
“God uses it [Scripture] to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:17
