Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good, yes He is good and He is worthy to be praised. I had a longer than usual devotional time today. I felt the need to really press in. The words “spiritual work” popped into my spirit and I went to the manual to get some direction. Let it bless you today.

Today’s Prayer

Father, we are in a time when the things that your Word has been preparing us for are really in the forefront; Senseless killing, greed and more greed. There is a proposed movement on by atheists who will rally in the nation’s capital to get people to not believe in you. This is a time for believers everywhere to make a stand and proclaim your name with boldness and courage. Light a fire in our hearts to do just that. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s Eat.

An Approved Worker

2 Timothy 2:15-26

 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. Avoid worthless, foolish talk that only leads to more godless behavior. This kind of talk spreads like cancer, as in the case of Hymenaeus and Philetus. They have left the path of truth, claiming that the resurrection of the dead has already occurred; in this way, they have turned some people away from the faith. But God’s truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and “All who belong to the Lord must turn away from evil.” In a wealthy home some utensils are made of gold and silver, and some are made of wood and clay. The expensive utensils are used for special occasions, and the cheap ones are for everyday use. If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work. Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.
