Most of us have experienced the shame of not telling the whole truth. Myself, I was corrected in a most convincing manner as a child not to split hairs, or mix truth with a lie. Likewise, some of us misquote scripture or take it out of context to fit our immediate need in life. 2 Timothy reminds us to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman who needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15).
If we are dividing the word of truth, which means rightly handling the word, we will never have a need to be ashamed. Jesus broke it down like this, "If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:31-32 RSV
There definitely is something freeing about the word of truth. If you continue in JESUS, who is the Word, you will not have to be concerned so much about showing yourself approved. God will do that for you! These truths become evidence of Gods’ approval in our lives. Once we grasp that, we can expect miracles to happen!
