Read the Bible in a year by reading Second Timothy 2 today. Some people ridicule the idea of following the rules of the Scriptures, as though doing so is opposed to relying upon God’s grace. Yet, Paul told Timothy, “And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules” (2Timothy 2:5). Therefore, if someone tells you rules and regulations were only associated with the Law of Moses, do not listen to that teacher. The Holy Spirit moved Paul to write that the only way the Lord shall crown us is if we follow the rules.
