Check out 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT): “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” These are not just words written a long time ago. They are the inspired wisdom of God. This is God’s chosen instrument for life change. God uses these words to get us ready for every good work: all the good things He wants to do in us and through us. Imagine for a second some cool future God has in store for you. He wants you to accomplish something, help someone, make a difference or experience something. But you are not yet the person you need to be to do the thing you are meant to do. You need to grow into that role. The Bible is what God uses to grow you up, transform you and equip you to do the works you are called to do. Some of us feel that yearning to do more, and God is like, “I’m with you on that. I want you to do more, but first you need to become more, and that means you need to grow.”
