Know Your Conviction

II Timothy 2:15

All throughout the Bible, there are countless examples of Christians who have accepted Jesus as their personal savior, but do not have specific convictions about what they believe and how they are to interact in their daily lives. II Timothy 2:15 states, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth." The word for study is in the imperative mood. This means that believers are commanded to study the Word of God.

There is a temptation to the natural man to immediately think that to study the Word of God may be boring. Yet, there are countless benefits to individuals who will obey the Divine mandate given in II Timothy 2:15. God promised Joshua that if he would not let the book of the law depart from his mouth, and would meditate therein day and night, and observe all that it said, the Lord would prosper his way and give him success (2). The Lord promises success to those who meditate upon the Holy Scriptures. God will keep the minds of those who think on His Word in perfect peace (3). He will give discernment to the believer in making decisions.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. - 2 Timothy 2:15

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. - Joshua 1:8

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. - Isaiah 26:3
