_ 060214 Soldier for Christ

Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and worthy. As you read today’s message substitute your name where you see Timothy and put it perspective for your situation. You will be blessed.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Lord Jesus, help me to see that the climax of Your mission on earth was Your Pentecost experience — the establishing of Your church and the arrival of the Holy Spirit. You came, not just to offer mankind a “heavenly insurance policy,” but also to equip those who would believe for Kingdom-living here and now, so that Your words might continue to be spread abroad.. You came, not for just one generation, but for all generations to come. You promised to baptize us with Your Holy Spirit, to provide the spiritual gifts, the boldness, the courage, and the power to enable Your disciples, then and now, to keep Your message alive. You promised all of that if I would but ask, and I’m asking You now, Lord. Use me, and empower me to be Your witness, so that all I say and do will glorify You! In Your holy name I pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

A Good Soldier of Christ Jesus

2 Timothy 2:1-14 – 

Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. Soldiers don’t get tied up in the affairs of civilian life, for then they cannot please the officer who enlisted them. And athletes cannot win the prize unless they follow the rules. And hardworking farmers should be the first to enjoy the fruit of their labor. Think about what I am saying. The Lord will help you understand all these things. Always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News I preach. And because I preach this Good News, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. But the word of God cannot be chained. So I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chosen. This is a trustworthy saying: If we die with him, we will also live with him. If we endure hardship, we will reign with him. If we deny him, he will deny us. If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is. Remind everyone about these things, and command them in God’s presence to stop fighting over words. Such arguments are useless, and they can ruin those who hear them.

Quote of the Day

Duties are ours, events are God’s; When our faith goes to meddle with events, and to hold account upon God’s Providence, and beginneth to say, ‘How wilt Thou do this or that?’ we lose ground; we have nothing to do there; it is our part to let the Almighty exercise His own office, and steer His own helm; there is nothing left for us, but to see how we may be approved of Him, and how we roll the weight of our

weak souls upon Him who is God omnipotent, and when we thus essay miscarrieth, it shall be neither our sin nor our cross.
