Scripture of the Day - June 3/4, 2012

2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Cor 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

When a soldier joins boot camp he is put through rigorous training...some make it through and some give up. Those that make it through have pleased their commanding officer. They have not let the outside world influence them, rather they focused on their goal and followed through to their reward. 
One of the things impressed upon the soldier is to know his weapon. He has to be able to take apart that weapon and put it back together in record time. He has to know that weapon intimately. There must be no could mean life or death on the battle field. As well as knowing his weapon the soldier must be free to use that weapon. He cannot draw his weapon and use it if his arms are tangled in something...the weapon is useless to him. 

We are soldiers in God's army and the Word of God is our ONLY weapon. We must know the Word intimately, we must be able to apply it in every situation with no could mean a life or death decision. We must be free from the entanglement of this world in order to apply the Word effectively. Don't let the vain philosophies of this world entangle you; know the Word of the Creator, the Word of the One who will judge you some day, the Word of the One who gave His life for you, the WORD OF TRUTH.
