Abide In The Scriptures

From childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able

to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.


1 Timothy 3:15

The apostle Paul knew the transforming nature of Scripture. Writing from prison in Rome, he urged Timothy, whom he mentored, to “continue in what you have learned” because “from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures” (2 Timothy 3:14-15). The word continue also means to “abide,” abide in what the Bible reveals. Knowing that Timothy would face opposition and persecution, Paul wanted him to be equipped for the challenges; he believed his protégé would find strength and wisdom in the Bible as he spent time pondering its truth.

God through His Spirit brings Scripture alive to us. As we dwell in it, He changes us to be more like Him.
