2nd Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18 Thoughts for reflection:  It is important for all to remember God did not ask us to be victorious in all we do, but instead to persevere in our faith in all things.  If we are faithful, doing the Christ-like thing as often as we can, God will take care of the […]

2nd Timothy 3:14-4:5 Thoughts for reflection:  Verse 4:3 is one which often comes to my mind.  How easy is it for you to list groups or individuals who you believe are turning their backs on sound biblical teaching and adopting teachings that suit their own desire?  If I was guessing, I would say, not very […]

Daily Devotional – Friday, July 29

2nd Timothy 2:8-15 Thoughts for reflection:  What is the line between being confident in our faith, proudly and lovingly following Jesus Christ in all we do, and being confrontational in our beliefs where we are demanding others believe and act as we do; where we see ourselves as right, and they are wrong?  The more […]

2nd Timothy 1:1-14 Thoughts for reflection:  What does it look like today to “have a spirit of power, love, and self-discipline?”  I believe for most of us our faith is something which is both ever-present and slightly hidden in our daily lives.  Because of the confrontational nature of previous evangelistic movements and the increasing societal […]

1st Timothy 2:1-7 Thoughts for reflection:  How often do you pray for the leaders of our nation, state, city, and church?  Now if you do, these are not the kind of prayers where we pray it is anyone but them in power, but prayers where we give thanks, make supplications, and intercede.  Paul makes the point […]

Daily Devotional – Monday, July 25

1st Timothy 1:12-17 Thoughts for reflection:  For those of you who are not up with what the cool kids are saying, I am not either, I just read a lot, what we know as false humility is now often called a “humble brag”.  In reading these verses, it would be easy to categorize what Paul […]

2nd Thessalonians 3:6-13 Thoughts for reflection:  “You are either growing or dying.  Nothing stays the same.”  I can’t remember who said it, but I remember it.  This is absolutely true about living a Christ-like life.  Paul knew this when he wrote 2nd Thessalonians.  Living a life of faith is like exercise, if you don’t do […]

Daily Devotional – Saturday, July 23rd

2nd Thessalonians 2:1-5, 13-17 Thoughts for reflection:  In today’s reading, you hear strong echoes of the reading from Monday.  The challenges the people had once faced in worshiping false idols and other gods are still presenting a challenge for them. We can easily have the misimpression that once we give our life to Christ, all […]
