A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, December 27

2 Timothy 4:1-5

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

This passage is very powerful, especially as Paul sees the future so clearly. Yet I wonder about the message for me, as I am clearly not a teacher/preacher. The best I can do is to teach by example, but even there I often fall short. Maybe the message for me today is to remember that I am one of those knowing the truth, knowing Christ, and able to share what I know and believe with others. That is always possible, when we look and listen for the opportunities God puts in our path.

Heavenly Father, help me see opportunities to share my faith. Help me to see opportunities to share your love. Send me, God. Amen

Becky, transforming
