A Worker Who Does Not Need to be Ashamed          


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.  II Timothy 2:15

ToddNewA few years ago I made a huge mistake.  I decided I was going to renovate our master bathroom.  Although I consider myself an adequate handyman, I was faking it when it came to such a big renovation.  After I was done, I assessed my handiwork and I was actually a little ashamed.  Drywall was uneven, grout in tile was haphazard, and the electrical probably wasn't to code.  Not only did it look bad, but it was a little dangerous.

I think many of us approach Scripture the way that I approached my bathroom renovation.  We just sort of fake it.  Instead of studying and being a "worker who does not need to be ashamed," we do things haphazardly.  It's not pretty and maybe a bit dangerous.

Although not all of us are called to be building contractors, we are ALL called to know God's Word and draw close to Him.  This fall we want you to take advantage of the many studies/classes being offered so that you will know God's Word better.  Here they are:
