God’s Truth for Trying Times - 7/22/20


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 ‭2:3-4‬ ‭‬‬

“Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.”

‭‭(2 Timothy‬ ‭2:3-4‬)


CONSIDER: Paul knew that Timothy was suffering. So he encouraged him as he suffered to consider himself a soldier of Christ. And to know that it would be so easy to get caught up in worldly passions. He was to be laser focused on aligning with God’s purpose is in the gospel.


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?
