Good morning 2 timothy 2 is a word for the world to hear and read. Some Christians would benefit from it as well. It read beginning in the 3rd verse Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 7 Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.
Paul who was once a murder of the faith converted to teaching the core of following Christ is not to follow your self and your own thinking, but to have a leader guiding you through the battle of Faith. This is even for the lost. The reason the world is lost and those who confess Christ are confused, feeling defeated, feeling diseased, cheated, abused, left out and misused is because the morale is low or zero. Low or zero means they are not connected to the faith and leaders of the faith, they make excuses not to use or exercise the word in their life, or being worldly they watch what’s happening around them and make the most comfortable choices. Faith is a sacrifice and in order to win it takes the sacrifice of change. I encourage everyone to pass this word on. Life is not getting better in the position your in, life is waiting for you to stand up and join in the movement of Christ, get in the body of Christ doing the things Christ calls us to do. We’re not here to simply help ourselves. Look at this world help is needed to build, edify, create, assist, bless, speak kind words, pray, rebuild communities, and love one another. So many people are entangled in there thoughts of what they’re going through they don’t realize what their going through would be relieved from their minds when they get involved with helping others. God bless you in Jesus name a May blessing reign in your mind and life! Amen
