“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (II Timothy 3:16,17).

Because the Christian walk is a daily walk, it would follow that our “furnishing” or equipping would be a daily one, so that we will be fresh for any situation. We are to “take up (our) cross daily” (Luke 9:23); Paul said “I die daily” (I Corinthians 15:31); the Berean Christians “searched the Scriptures daily” (Acts 17:11). The word “perfect” in our text verse actually means fresh and implies completeness. The completeness or perfectness in the context of our text verse means that we can be confident we are thoroughly equipped to face any demand, present or future; and serious study of the Scripture is a key to that equipping.

At times we may be called upon to give counsel. The psalmist’s source of counsel should be ours also: “Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors” (Psalm 119:24). We may be needed to give comfort, the “comfort of the Scriptures” (Romans 15:4). So many around us live in spiritual darkness, and Scripture is the lamp and the light that points the way to the “true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (John 1:9). Peter exhorted us to “be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you” (I Peter 3:15). The greatest need in Christianity today is for individual believers to study their Bibles and give God’s defense against a tireless battering by evolutionism and humanism.

The above are just some of the “good works” for which we are furnished daily. “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work” (II Corinthians 9:8). CJH
