Living The Dash (6)

“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” 2 Tim 3:14-15 (NIV)

What have you learned?

Life is full of lessons. If you had only one month to live, how would you apply what you have learned up to this point in your life? Think about your exposure to God’s Word and the verses you have memorized. Think about how much you have fed on God’s Word and sought to apply the principles from the Bible.

Paul encouraged Timothy to continue in what he had learned from infancy from constant exposure to the holy Scriptures. Feeding on God’s Word is to be our continual practice and our consistent discipline. Yet, it is not enough to just read the Bible, we must apply God’s Word in daily living.

  • “Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.” Psalms 89:15 (NIV)
  • “Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Phil 4:9 (NIV)

Maybe a good start for you would be to commit to read through the Bible in one year. If you will read four chapters each day, you will cross the finish line in 365 days. Daily intake and application of God’s Word will enable your dash to make a Kingdom splash.

Pursuing God,
