“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,” -2 Timothy 3:16
The Word of God, propelled by the Spirit of God into a willing heart, does more than inform, it transforms. -Paul Tripp
“If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed. Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” -1 Timothy 4:6-8
Spiritual training in godliness is priceless. It is profitable for everything in your life. You must have the right spiritual diet and exercise. Nourish yourself. Eat what is good for you: the truth of God’s Word. As you love God’s Word, you live God’s Word. Let it settle and sink in and saturate your life. –excerpt from Pastor Steve Wainright’s Sunday Morning Sermon
Let my heart be sound in Thy statutes: that I be not ashamed. -Psalm 119:80
We may regard this inspired prayer as containing within itself the assurance that those who keep close to the Word of God shall never have cause to be ashamed of doing so.
See, the prayer is for soundness of heart. A sound creed is good, a sound judgment concerning it is better, but a sound heart toward the truth is best of all. We must love the truth, feel the truth, and obey the truth, otherwise we are not truly sound in God’s statutes. Are there many in these evil days who are sound? Oh, that the writer and the reader may be two of this sort!
Many will be ashamed in the last great day, when all disputes will be decided. Then they will see the folly of their inventions and be filled with remorse because of their proud infidelity and willful defiance of the Lord; but he who believed what the Lord taught and did what the Lord commanded will stand forth justified in what he did. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun. Men much slandered and abused shall find their shame turned into glory in that day.
Let us pray the prayer of our text, and we may be sure that its promise will be fulfilled to us. If the Lord makes us sound, He will keep us safe.

“But a certain man drew his bow at random and struck the king of Israel between the scale armor and the breastplate. Therefore he said to the driver of his chariot, ‘Turn around and carry me out of the battle, for I am wounded.’” -1 Kings 22:34

They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us on the road, while He opened to us the Scriptures?”
Jesus’ emphasis was on the Word of God. Once these disciples believed the Word, then they could see. Their hearts were set on fire and they couldn’t help but share the good news about Jesus!
