For the podcast this week, Tim speaks from 2 Timothy 3. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God. This Scripture is profitable for reproof. The word reproof has to do with proving and evidence. Hebrews 11:1 says that, “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” This evidence has a personal connection. What has the study of Scripture done for you? This provides the evidence for other people to see Christ through you.
From, Philippians 2:1-13, verses 12-13 are paramount to us and what we believe. This Scripture is saying to each one of us that we need to figure this out on our own. When it says to work out your faith with fear and trembling, what evidence are you seeing? Do you sense a presence bigger than yourself that does more than you can do?
Tim is praying for us to search the Scripture on our own and that the Spirit of God would be with us and open our eyes, providing conviction and evidence. This will allow the unbelieving world to see something different in us.
