How is it Profitable for You Personally?

Tim continues speaking from 2 Timothy 3, but he opens the message by reading from James 1:22:  “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

Tim is not concerned about having an entertaining service on Sunday mornings, he is expecting changed people.  When Timothy says the Word of God is profitable for doctrine, it is that which is taught by Jesus your Savior.  Reproof is that by which a thing is proved or tested by conviction.  Faith is that very conviction and proof.  Correction is restoration to a right or upright state.

What we have been talking about is really personal.  We are all learning to use the Word of God to increase our faith for power over our lives.

Are you allowing the Word of God and its teachings, testing, and correction to be profitable for you on a personal level?

What is going on in your personal walk with God that is more noticeable, substantial, and life changing today than it was a year ago today?

How is your faith growing?
