Skilled Craftsmen.

In 2 Timothy 2:15 it says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” All throughout the Bible God talks about skilled craftsmen. Whenever there was something to be built, they called for skilled craftsmen. Whether it was for the Tent of the Meeting or the temple in Jerusalem or the walls in the Jerusalem. Skilled Craftsmen were needed to construct anything, The Bible talks about how we are constructed by the word of God. When we first come to the Lord, we are called babies that need to be taken care of. But as we mature in Christ by reading and doing the Word of God, we begin to handle the Word of God as a craftsman. Then as we continue in the Word of God, we become skilled. We are able to rightly handle the Word as God intended for us to do. The Word of God mixed with faith will produce God’s will on this earth. As it says in 2 Timothy 2:15, study to show yourself approved unto God. We must make time to read and study God’s word. Then it will become real in our lives. We have to start with reading, then understanding what it says and finally experiencing God’s word, then it becomes wisdom for us. This is how we become mature in God’s kingdom being able to handle God’s word, a skilled craftsmen.
