Right Division: The Answer to Understanding Scripture
“Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman who needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth” (II Timothy ).
The Word of God itself provides us with the key to its own proper understanding through “rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” God’s ecclesia, the Body of Christ, is not the only people in the programs and purposes of God. People in other ages need Scripture to instruct them in the specifics of God’s dealings with them just as we do. Remember that all of the Scripture is for us – but it is not all to us, nor is it all about us. If we fail to recognize this important fact, we will never properly be able to understand just what God is doing today, nor will we know just what He would have us do.
