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

I remember talking with family members who had been incarcerated, asking them how many Jews (Hebrews) they met when they were in jail. This was to prove a point without doing a statistical research although I went on and did the research any way. You will find the links at the bottom of this writing. However both of their answers was the same, there were none. The reason I asked the question and I am posing it to the readers is, because the Jewish community always seemed to thrive with success no matter what circumstance they encountered.
Many of them still believe Jesus was a prophet, but there are quite a few converting to Christianity in this day and time. The point presented is to increase the awareness of their dedication to teaching their children and families the very scripture presented today along with teaching them the entire Torah. The Torah includes the first five book of The bible which are Genesis, Exodus, Duet. and Numbers. The Jewish families and communities by generations are known to reach far greater success rates in life, because of the family unity and education they persist in. Often you will hear those having legal problems or medical problems being served by jewish lawyers and doctors. The scriptures given this morning says in Duet. 6:6-7 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. As we use the word the Holy Spirit gets involved because we are redeemed through Jesus. We have the three-fold power pack working in our favor concerning family and children as we believe and apply the word obeying and sitting at the dinner table having Godly discussions letting our family and children know they matter by taking time and demonstrating love from Gods understanding. Change can only come through self-examination. It only takes one to begin and Jesus says in Matthew 5:17 that he did not come to abolish the law nor the prophets but to fulfill them it is necessary to teach the commandments to the children. Hug a child today, God said suffer not the little ones bring them to Him (Jesus) they are our future. Even adults they have a child in them that needs embracing, it’s never to late to start over. God is a God of forgiveness and He loves us beyond our faults.
Amen let JESUS USE you with spreading the word and love today!
