When was the last time you honestly said this to yourself or another and beloved it with all you heart, mind, and soul. That is what Paul is telling us here because he didn’t want to believe it and led an empty life because of it. He was choosing not to see the truth of God’s word. So one day on a road, God put a pause in Paul’s life so that he could understand what was coming next.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
2 Timothy 3:16 ESV
