Complete and Thoroughly Equipped

2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

The very existence of our life is found in Jesus Christ. Because of Him we have life. Jesus is the Word that became flesh, therefore He and the Word are one. To truly live we must allow His Word to do its work in us. In these verses we are told that through scripture we may be throughly equipped for every good work (what God has planned for us).

These four things revealed in 2 Timothy are how we through the complete working of God’s Word experience what He has planned for us. We must continually receive sound doctrinal teaching from the Word of God. False doctrine is the result of man’s opinion, taking scripture out of context. So make sure you are receiving sound doctrine. As we are taught the Word of God rebuke will come, which means a revealing of areas in our life where change is needed. If we will receive rebuke, not becoming offended by the Word of God, we will then receive the correction needed from the Word.

This correction is God revealing to us how to correct the areas in our life that we are not walking in line with His will. As we make these corrections we are instructed in righteousness, doing what is pleasing to God, which brings us into a deeper relationship with Him. Letting the Word do its work in your life is how you become complete, and thoroughly equipped for every good work.
