Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15
As followers of Christ, Beloved, we must be workmen; for we have work to do, and we must take pains in it. Workmen that are unskilful, or unfaithful, or lazy, have need to be ashamed; but those who mind their business, and keep to their work, are workmen that need not be ashamed. And what is our work? It is to rightly divide the word of truth. Not to invent a new gospel, but rightly to divide the gospel that is committed to their trust. How can one TRUST that which he knows not; how can one have FAITH in that which he understands not; and without such, we lack the power and the energy to DO!
