HIS EXCELLENT WORD
2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
The Scene: A hand-cut stone foundation, for a structure is being laid down in place– straight, plumb, square.
A Christian song written by Michael Hayden in 1822, “How Firm a Foundation” “How firm a foundation ye saints of the Lord, is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!” So goes this hymn– God gave His Word to His people, so that what they believe and have faith in is true to His Word.
There are many people who lack this God-given foundation and who spread false teachings and lies to others, for their own purposes. Their victims are people who are unsaved or untrained in God’s Word, immature persons. All will one day be judged rightly by God, so it is very important to get His Word firmly planted in our minds and hearts, correctly, which only comes through reading, hearing, studying His revelation, His Word the Holy Bible.
2 Timothy 2:16 & 19 “Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. Their teaching will spread like gangrene. v.19 “Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: ‘The Lord knows those who are his,’ and, ‘Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.’ ”
