Last Days (4)

In our Bible Reading for today, Paul instructed Timothy to continue following the teachings that he had learned. Timothy had learned these teachings from Paul and from God’s Word.
This advice is good for Christians today, too. We can read other books and learn from the Internet and TV. But the most important thing we can do is study the Bible and apply it to our lives. The Bible is most important because it is “given by God” (verse 16).
The Bible is also “useful for teaching and for showing people the things that are wrong in their lives. It is useful for correcting faults and teaching how to live right” (verse 16b). Wow! The Bible has everything we need to help us have wisdom and make right decisions.
The last days that Paul talked about are here now. We need to be holy, obedient, faithful and honest. We should also read and study God’s Word. Then we will be ready when Jesus comes again.
