What's The Stuff We're Supposed To Do


".... So that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Tim.3:17).

If we stay on yesterday's theme of being people who are to abound in the Lord's work, (1 Cor.15:58) I guess we need to determine just what that work is. I cut off the verse that immediately precedes today's verse. Most of the time, we use 2 Tim.3:16-17 as companion scriptures. I did it so I can say this; The Lord's work is generally viewed as that which the scriptures tell us to do... Thus, "All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness...." (V 16) Without belaboring the point, our good works need to be Bible based... Let me make a list with the accompanying verses that lead us into our abounding in the Lord's work... Here are some great areas of service: (1) Family (Titus 2:1-8) The Bible speaks about one another's responsibilities within a family. (2) Business (Eph.4:28) The Bible is clear about how a person is supposed conduct themselves at work... (3) Teaching God's Word (1 Cor.16:10) Today's verse speaks clearly about this... (4) Restoring one another (Gal.6:1) It is our responsibility as Godly people, to help those who are going through a spiritual rough patch... (5) Giving (1 Cor.16:1-2) We are instructed to lay by in store on the first day of the week. To me "laying by in store" indicates our organized plan to give... (6) Ministering to the saints (1 Cor.16:15-16) This lets us know that we are to always be ready to serve one another... Since the church is composed of many members with varying talents, we may be able to choose an area where a great amount of service might be rendered. I've given us all lot of choices today of ways that we can minister to one another. Looking at the verses that accompany each area might be useful to us.... The big question might be this... If we are not abounding in the Lord's work, who will be?

Have a wonderful day... Make your little part of the world better.... Love mark Phil.4:11
