Living My Faith …

After reading Paul’s two letters to Timothy, I have been reminded by Paul’s warnings and instructions how difficult “living your faith” can be. “Living my Faith” takes work and requires strength and courage and often suffering; and this means living with intentionality, alertness, awareness, carefulness, and a unique boldness. However, Paul’s words were not without hope and the reminder that in “Living my Faith” there are also blessings – both in this life and in the life to come – 

“Train yourself to be godly, for physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” 1 Tim 4:7b-8

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a Spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline.”          2 Tim 2:7

“Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive His approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.” 2 Tim 2:15

“But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me … and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom…” 2 Tim 4:17-18

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day – and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing.” 2 Tim 4:7-8
