2 Timothy 2:1-13
Much of our world today is trapped, entangled in the ongoing pursuit of serving self and one’s own agenda. Even those who claim to live a life of faith can often serve the consumeristic mentality that declares, “What’s in it for me?” While stuck in our sins, our endless selfish adventures, the Lord reveals His grace and mercy through His Son Jesus. While dead, He makes us alive by the sacrifice and resurrection of Christ!
This incredible news doesn’t end with us. It is meant to be passed on to those we come across at our workplaces, in our communities, and in our schools. After experiencing this transformational grace, it is our call to seek those who need this same encounter. We become missionaries in everyday life circumstances to reveal this grace to others.
May we share in the sufferings, as Paul suggests in 2 Timothy 2:1-13, and likewise offer the freedom found in the undeserved, unmerited grace of our incredible God.
