II Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
As a child of God we must study his word. Many of you are in school and know that you must be diligent in your studies. In school, your ultimate goal is to graduate and become a successful person. When studying God’s word our goal is to reflect and relate to his teachings, to walk the correct path, and to get to his kingdom.
Belief in a higher power is one of our principles. Regardless of who you acknowledge as your creator, make sure you do your research to gain understanding of their teachings. With studying his word you will begin to live better, willing to lend a helping hand to those in need, do things better, etc. Once you have gained knowledge and understanding, make sure you are able to explain to anyone what God is trying to teach.
Do your best to know that God is pleased with you. Being a child of God is nothing to be ashamed of. Don’t study to impress anyone, do it for yourself. Have a heart to serve God. Do it because of him and because you have the desire or wanting to learn. When I was in school I used to hate to see the “fake worshipers”. You know, the ones that came just to show their face or try to make themselves look good. They are usually the ones that really need Gods help.
Think about your walk with God. Think about how you’re living your life. Are there some things that need to change?
