CORRECTION BY THE WORD (Take Reproof And Correction Because They’re Good For You)

👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;

📖 TO THE BIBLE
2 Timothy 3:16 MSG “Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another–showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way.”

▶ LET’S TALK
Some young people grew up in homes where no one could reprimand or correct them for wrong doing, not even their parents. It explains why, even after giving their hearts to Christ, they still find it difficult to accept correction in the house of God. But that isn’t right for a Christian. Read our opening verse again; it says God’s Word is “…God-breathed and useful one way or another— showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way” (MSG).

You have to learn to accept correction in the house of God, because that’s one of the ways by which the Holy Spirit, through the Word, helps you develop godly character. Be humble and pay attention to your leaders as they instruct you in the Word. There’re certain things people learnt in their natural lives before coming to Christ, things that aren’t consistent with the Christ-nature. Those things aren’t suddenly put away by salvation.

That’s the reason for the renewing of the mind, through meditation on God’s Word. For example, Ephesians 4:31 TLB says, “Stop being mean, bad-tempered, and angry. Quarreling, harsh words, and dislike of others should have no place in your lives.” This was written to people who were already Christians.

It’s important that you submit to the Word, letting it form your character and give you a new mindset. Refuse to accept and allow your senses to dominate or control you. Don’t be inflated with pride when someone is talking to you, trying to correct you with the Word of God. Accepting rebuke and correction is humility; it reveals your greatness because truly great people are very humble.
