All Important

today's reading.
2 Timothy 3:12-17    Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted...

think about it.
In these changing times, what can the godly expect to face (3:12-13; 4:3-4)? What are the godly to hold onto despite changing times (3:14-4:2)? What is central when you talk to someone about Jesus? How does this passage help you prepare you for witnessing?

the blog.
You hear us say all the time on Back to the Bible and here on P4 that there's nothing more important than God's Word and, of course, engaging the Word (receiving scripture by reading or hearing, reflecting on or considering it, and then responding to it). Paul really confirms that in 2 Timothy 3:12-4:5, plus he gives us instruction on how to use God's Word not only in our individual life, but also with others. 

This passage was just a great read for me today. I can never have too many reminders that God's Word is absolute and perfect and needs to be the center of my living.

So why is the Bible so important to you? Did you see anything new in 2 Timothy 3:12-4:5? What about good reminders from this passage? Tami W.
