MINIMISE EVERY ERROR
(God’s Word Is Given To Update And Upgrade You)
TO THE BIBLE 2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV
“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.”
In the Scripture above, the King James version uses the word “perfect,” rendered “artios” in Greek, which means “a freshness in completeness.” In today’s language, it means to be “up-to-date” or “updated.” So, the Scriptures are there for you to “update” and upgrade your life to perfection. Anyone would be making a big mistake to think they can live a glorious life, devoid of errors, if they ignored the Scriptures.
If you want to live in the perfect will of God, pleasing Him in all things, living the Word is the only way. The Word is given to us to guide us, correct us, build and shape our character in righteousness and true holiness. If you’re not following the Scriptures properly, you’ll make king-sized errors—embarrassing but avoidable mistakes.
Jesus said in Matthew 22:29 NIV, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.” The more you study the Word, the more you minimise your errors, and ultimately become perfect. One of the definitions of success is the ability to minimize errors. Don’t keep making the same mistakes you made years ago. To keep repeating your mistakes means there’s no growth. But with the abundance of God’s Word in your heart, you’ll grow unto perfection, and mistakes will be eliminated.
Let the Word dwell in you richly; it’ll give you the advantage, and make you perfect in all things. Give it first place in your life, and see the perfections of the Spirit become manifest in your life and in all that you do.
“So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
The Word of God dwells in me richly in all wisdom, propelling me in perfection and excellence. I have a sound mind, and an excellent life, because I’m yielded to, and led by, the Holy Spirit, who guides me through the Word. I’m perfect, proficient, and thoroughly fitted for every good work. Glory to God!
