Today’s reading is 2 Timothy 1.
Paul was unashamed. Why? Because he knew whom he had believed. He knew who God was. He knew what God was capable of. He knew what God had promised. He knew he could trust God. Jesus has abolished death and brought life and immortality through the gospel. Paul knew it and was convinced. So, no matter what the world dished out, no matter what society said about him or did to him, he would be unashamed of Jesus. He would wear Jesus like a badge of honor. May we be so convicted that no matter the shame society tries to heap on us, we will revel in believing Jesus and belonging to Him.
Tomorrow’s reading is 2 Timothy 2.
A Word for Our Kids
Hey kids, Timothy’s mother and grandmother were faithful to the Lord. Timothy first learned faith from them. What a great example for you. Are your parents faithful to the Lord? Then look to them. Learn faith from them. Imitate them. Take their faith with you. Make their faith your faith. Then serve the Lord in faithfulness just like Timothy. What a great legacy that will be within your family.
