God Gives Us All We Need
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Each regenerated soul is recovering from sin. What does that statement mean? Though we asked for forgiveness for our sin and God sanctified our soul from the wages of sin made possible by His shed-blood sacrifice at Calvary, each day, each hour, and each moment is a time of recovering from the hold of sin and maturing in Christ. Each regenerated soul starts out on the milk of God’s Word and moves on to the meat as he or she develops spiritually.
Just like a recovering addict, a sexual pervert, or alcoholic, we must watch our steps and not fall back into our “favorite” sin(s), but press on towards the mark God has set for our lives through His Son Jesus Christ. God did not leave us spiritually high and dry. Or He did not save us to sit and sour. God provides us with the proper spiritual doctrine, necessary correction, direction to follow, and further instruction on staying right with Him. Any person dedicated to pleasing God can move forward each day from pleasing themselves to delighting in God! Yes, there is profit in serving and savoring God!
In other words, God gives us all we need to walk spiritually healthy with Him as we sojourn in this wicked world. There is no reason to look for direction beyond the Word of God – for God’s Word contains everything that we need to live a successful life pleasing God as we sojourn on this earth.
God cares about our every move. He provides each soul the whole spiritual shebang! Yes, everything we need for spiritual well-being and for bringing glory to Him, we can hear His Word in our ear gate and hold it in the palm of our hands as we sojourn on this earth, separating from the weight and wages of sin. God’s Word is our instruction manual, and once every genuine child of God steps into eternity upon physical death, he or she is wholly perfected.
