2 Timothy 2:15 – Children that Know the Word

Today’s Reading: Jeremiah 44:24‐47:7, 2 Timothy 2:22‐3:17, Psalm 94:1‐23, Proverbs 26:6‐8

Context: This verse is actually from yesturdays reading, but it rocked me.  Paul affirms Timothy through pointing out his faithfulness.   He tells Timothy that he will go through persecution, but to stay strong and to hold onto God’s Word. 

2 Timothy 2:14-15 “But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.”

Observations:

  • Continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed
    • knowing from whom you learned it
    • How from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings
      • which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus

As I read this passage today my heart burned with the desire to teach Anna God’s word.  I want her to be “acquainted with the sacred writings.”  I want her to be “wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.”  When she is older I want her to continue in what she learned.

Apply: Currently we read Bible story books at night.  I want to start including actual Bible readings.

Please share any ideas you have for getting children acquainted with the Bible.
