God’s Truth for Trying Times - 8/17/20
We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).
READ: 2 Timothy 4:6-7
“For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
(2 Timothy 4:6-7)
CONSIDER: Paul was aware that he was about to die soon. He was able to say that he had fulfilled the calling God had put on his life, that he had persevered, that he had fully surrendered his life and by God’s grace had stayed faithful. It is only by God’s grace and mercy and his sovereign enabling and providential leading.
THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?
