Chosen by God!
To help people understand clearly the message of salvation and spiritual growth, we must focus on communicating God’s revelation in Scripture because:
“All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, outfitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (II Timothy 3:16-17 AMP)
“For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12 AMP)
In order to know someone you must spend time with them. The same applies to knowing God. We must spend time with Him. We learn about His character, love for us, grace towards us, mercy available to us, and so much more by studying His Word. It’s through His Word that we learn to love Him and love others. It’s when we can help others to understand the importance of the Word that we can encourage them to study the Word, spend time in the Word, and grow to love the Word. It’s an individual choice. It’s only through knowing the Word that we will ever know the God of the Word. There are no shortcuts.
