“[B]ut when he arrived in Rome he searched for me earnestly and found me – may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that day!—and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesus” (1 Timothy 1:17-18).
There have always been the faithful who serve the Lord diligently. Although not heralded in this world, the Lord will reward as He wills for faithfulness. Live life such that you live out the Gospel seeking to be faithful in what the Lord commands you. Be one who serves the Lord faithfully wherever He places you. We are all called to learn how to live faithfully for the Lord.
The world tempts me to go in many directions. You call me to follow You. The world would have me be distracted. You call me to be focused. The world would have me chase fame. You call me to be content in every circumstance. Lead me, Lord, in the better and more faithful way of truth and life. Guide me in Your goodness to see the better portion and act according to Your will.
Lord Jesus, You know the struggle of this world. You know what it is to have people press You to get off track and not do the Father’s will. Lead me through all of these distractions so that I may be guided by Your Spirit to do what is right and fitting in all circumstances. Lead me so that it does not matter whether anyone sees what I am doing,. Help me to desire to do what is right simply because it is right. Amen.
