Wednesday

Read 2 Timothy 2:8-15

8 Remember Jesus Christ, who was raised from death, who was a descendant of David, as is taught in the Good News I preach. 9 Because I preach the Good News, I suffer and I am even chained like a criminal. But the word of God is not in chains, 10 and so I endure everything for the sake of God's chosen people, in order that they too may obtain the salvation that comes through Christ Jesus and brings eternal glory. 11 This is a true saying:

“If we have died with him,
   we shall also live with him.
12 If we continue to endure,
   we shall also rule with him.
If we deny him,
   he also will deny us.
13 If we are not faithful,
   he remains faithful,
   because he cannot be false to himself.”

14 Remind your people of this, and give them a solemn warning in God's presence not to fight over words. It does no good, but only ruins the people who listen. 15 Do your best to win full approval in God's sight, as a worker who is not ashamed of his work, one who correctly teaches the message of God's truth.

Think

Timothy is encouraged to 'correctly teach the message of God's truth' - the message of Jesus' gift of grace and love.

Pray

Lord help me to remain faithful to your call to me to live in your truth.
