(This is an excerpt from a sermon on 2 Timothy 3:14-17 by Pastor Nathan Strutz, Resurrection Lutheran Church, Verona, WI firstname.lastname@example.org)
And how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
Did you know that this word for "infancy" most often talks about a child in the womb? A child in the womb. Think about that. Children in the womb are children. Children in the womb need to hear God’s Word and can hear God’s Word and can have faith in Jesus. The signs say, “If you are pregnant or might be pregnant, don’t drink or smoke. Don’t even be in a room with someone who’s smoking. Your baby is being exposed and might be harmed.” Well, if you are pregnant or might be pregnant, listen to God’s Word. Read your Bible out loud. Sing and pray out loud. You baby is being exposed to God’s Word. Your baby is hearing God’s Word and faith comes from hearing the message. It’s never too early to start. You are never too young. It’s also never too late to start. You are never too old. Never too old to start reading your Bible on your own. Never too old to start coming to Bible class. Never too old to know more of the Holy Bible.
