2 Timothy 2: (King James Version)
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. via 2 Timothy 2:14-16 – Passage Lookup – King James Version – BibleGateway.com.
I think this passage has never been more clear than it is this morning with Charles Spurgeon’s commentary from, yes you guessed it, Morning and Evening:
“Saints whose faith is weak, and whose knowledge is slender, are great losers; they are exposed to many enemies, and cannot follow the king whithersoever he goeth.”
A loser exposed to the enemy and who cannot follow hard after JESUS, is just the person I DO NOT want to be!
And there is only ONE way for me to be not that person.
Study to show myself approved — otherwise I will be ashamed!
This is an excellent, encouraging word for me this morning. I bless and praise the LORD to have it. Perhaps you do too.
I am thinking of you this morning and in these moments remembering you to JESUS.
I am remembering too and encouraging us to pray for Doug and Kelly Cote. On Wednesday, I think, their 11 year old son died on the playground of his school at the end of the year party. I don’t know what DADDY GOD is doing with this but I am certain that He is there to comfort and heal all the hearts that are shattered by this. I cannot imagine the unfathomable grief and horror this family is experiencing. Only the HOLY SPIRIT can heal them. And we can be servants and helpers with our prayers.
And Jonathan Burkhalter; in his mid 40s, wonderful Christian man diagnosed with cancer. I am posting the request in full on our notice page. Click HERE to be taken there.
Also remembering Betty, Melinda’s sister. You may also read more about Betty’s condition by clicking HERE.
Others are also listed at PFT. Click HERE to call their names before the LORD.
Thank You, ABBA, for this ministry and for the privilege of praying for many people. Thank You for each One. And for each I pray that we will be workmen that need not to be ashamed; that we will study Your Word and be fully equipped to help all those You bring to us. HOLY SPIRIT, call and raise up warriors to intercede for the Cote family and the Burkhalter family and Betty and Melinda and all we know in need. Amen and amen.
Grace and Peace,
