As believers our goal is to show ourselves approved in the sight of God. We should not just be hearers of the word but doers also. When we take this course of action we should hear the Word, the Word of truth, we should also work diligently to show ourselves approved. Timothy tells us to work hard so we can present ourselves to God. Presentation is everything, though we come to God with scraps but we continue our walk with hard work. In everything we do, we should do it with hard work in mind. When spreading the gospel, we should work hard and spread truth. We should work diligently spreading truth so that we can add more to the body of Christ. We should not be ashamed to spread the word, but to do so boldly and with confidence. Not only should we do with the Word of God we should do this with our lively hood.
2 Timothy 2, NLT " Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth"
