Because of Calvary,
II Timothy 2:15 (ESV)
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
“In recent decades there has been a great deal of stress on emotionalism, on getting some kind of charge out of Christianity. But you don’t primarily come to the Bible for a feeling. The Scriptures are not a sanctified pep pill. The Scriptures are there to give you knowledge, and gaining that knowledge takes effort.” [John R. MacArthur Jr., Why Believe the Bible? (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1980), p. 159-160]
