Hey guys! ✌🏽
This morning as we have a devotional let us open up with the song Way Maker.🎶 What stands out for me in this song is the declaration that God is a *way maker,* *miracle worker, promise keeper and light in the darkness*. The more we read the word the more we get to know who God is. This song was written when one of the band members child was sick and dying and the doctors couldn’t do anything, but God came through for them.
❓What are you believing in God for a miracle? For your own personal life? For our country? And even for the world? Write it down and pray over it.
Bible reading plan:
✅2 Timothy 1-2
2 Timothy 1
In 2nd Timothy Paul is writing to the young Timothy from prison⛓️. He is in the middle of his trial and this time he doesn’t think he will make it out. So he is asking for Timothy to come to him so he can pass on to Timothy the church planting mission. 💒
❔❔Paul encourages Timothy to fan into flame the spiritual gifts that he has. Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? Write them down and how God can use you to spread the gospel. If not write down what you know your strengths and talents are and how you can use them to spread the gospel.
The advice that Paul gives to Timothy is to not be ashamed of him or the gospel 💪🏽. Many times people may mock us or we may be afraid to admit that we are Christians but Paul says do not be ashamed! But instead God has given Him the power to do what he needs to do, planting churches and spreading the gospel.
❓❓Why do you think Paul gave Timothy this advice? How does it apply to you in your Christian walk?
2 Timothy 2.
In the second chapter of 2nd Timothy we see that Paul is asking Timothy to pass on the responsibility to others to spread the gospel but not just to anybody but reliable leaders.🙋🏽♂️🙋🏼♀️
👉🏾What do you think qualifies as a reliable leader? Could you be chosen as a reliable leader to spread the gospel?
❔❔Paul compares those who serve to a solder💂🏽♀️💂♂️, an athlete🏃🏽♂️ and a farmer👩🏽🌾👨🏿🌾. How do you think these 3 different comparisons show that it means to be a servant of the gospel of Jesus?
In 2nd Timothy 2:14-26 Paul gives Timothy advice that is very useful for life. Make a list of this advice and how it applies to you. Eg:
16Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.
22Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.
Read Psalm 8 and write down:
1. How God is described in the Psalm and what He does.
2. How humankind is described and our responsibility.
