From the Publisher
Just as in every work we do in life, we need some training. We are first taught what is expected of us and sometimes supervised (rebuked and corrected—if that is what it takes) until we got the job done. Then, after passing through the learning curves, we are expected to show some competency and sometimes required to train others (2 Timothy 2:2).
2 Timothy 3:16 outlines the purpose of the Scriptures, which is teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training till we attain verse 17 status: “thoroughly equipped.” God does not want us to be ill-equipped, rather to be completely and thoroughly equipped for every (not just some, but every) good work.
teaches us what we ought to know
shows us sins, blind spots, or errors to avoid
helps us make it right again and
helps us stay our course
If there is any blessing or laurel or glory as a result of this book, therefore, let the glory be to God and not to men.
