What! Study Again?

The exhortation of the Apostle Paul to Timothy centuries ago is a ringing challenge to the Christian Scientist of today: "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." II Tim. 2:15; Modern translations of the New Testament indicate that the Greek word translated "study" in the King James Version has more the meaning of "try hard" or "do your utmost."

Timothy was a young adult vested with many responsibilities for the development of the early Christian Church. The tasks ahead of him were momentous. There was much work to be done, and Paul's assistant must be ready. Progress lay along the disciplined path of working hard for spiritual growth and understanding.
