For it is in closest union with Him that we live and move and have our being;…
The very existence of our life is found in Jesus Christ. Because of Him we have life. Jesus is the Word that became flesh, therefore He and the Word are one. To truly live we must allow His Word to do its work in us. In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 we are told that all scripture is profitable for doctrine, rebuke, correction, and instruction in righteousness, so that we may be throughly equipped for every good work (what God has planned for us).
These four things revealed in 2 Timothy are how we live, move, and have our being in Him, the Word who became flesh. We must continually receive sound doctrinal teaching from the Word of God. False doctrine is the result of man’s opinion, taking scripture out of context. So make sure you are receiving sound doctrine. As we are taught the Word of God rebuke will come, which means a revealing of areas in our life were change is needed.
If we will receive rebuke, not becoming offended by the Word of God, we will then get correction from the Word. This is God revealing to us how to correct the areas in our life that we are not walking in line with His will. As we make these corrections we are instructed in righteousness, doing what is pleasing to God, which brings us into a deeper relationship with Him. Letting the Word do it’s work in your life is how you truly live, move, and have the kind of life God has for you.
