2 Timothy 1:1-14, Passing on a Legacy of Faith

Today’s epistle reading is probably the last letter written by Paul. It assumes that Paul writes from prison, probably toward the end of his life, to encourage Timothy as one who will carry on his work. This letter is much more personal in tone and content than other Pastoral Epistles. This passage could be interpreted just as a message of encouragement for church leaders, but it is made very clear that mission is part of the calling of every Christian to be faithful as disciples of Jesus Christ. 

It reminds, first of all, Timothy of his great heritage, his grandmother and mother who had been a person of great faith, but points out that it was the saving grace of Jesus that ultimately shaped his faith; second, Timothy of how precious the gift of a calling from God is; and, third, Timothy of being confident and trusted in God. 

There is a difference between believing in God and trusting God. Today, we may know that whatever the future holds for us, God goes with us through His spirit of love, power and discipline. And with that we can take on the world, Amen.  IL-WOONG.

Our Mission is to
Connect with people in Jesus;
Build each other up in faith; and to
Become Like Jesus.
