Daily Bible Reading (Thursday, October 5th)


2 Timothy 3 (ESV)


Godlessness in the Last Days

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith. But they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men.

All Scripture Is Breathed Out by God

10 You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness, 11 my persecutions and sufferings that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra—which persecutions I endured; yet from them all the Lord rescued me. 12 Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom[a]you learned it 15 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. 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God[b]may be complete, equipped for every good work.


  1. 2 Timothy 3:14 The Greek for whom is plural
  2. 2 Timothy 3:17 That is, a messenger of God (the phrase echoes a common Old Testament expression)


Fixated on verse 12. Praying for this country, for I truly don't believe it fully realizes the ramifications of truly being persecuted, I know I don't. Praying as well for all who are being persecuted for His gospel's sake. So grateful for the preaching and teaching at BF, pressing on to what we have learned and what we have firmly believed, knowing from whom we have learned it from. By scripture alone in Christ alone...amen

16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
This passage is well known but I hope I never take it for granted. What a great statement about the whole Bible and its divine source - God breathed. Not just the parts I find interesting are inspired but all of it and all of it is profitable. Unless I am into the whole Bible I am not adequately equipped for all the things I need to do. Through the years as a pastor I have been amazed by how many Christians never or very rarely read the Bible with their families. Also, I have known Christians who have been in church for many years but there are still major sections of the Bible that they have never even read. We have a great gift in the Bible. The Scriptures are our light and life. It is in the Scriptures that I see the Savior. I want to know Him more.
