You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:1-2).
We are not called to figure everything out or teach something that is new. We are called in the grace of Christ to live into the reality of the grace which is ours through Christ. Come then and live the call you have been given in your baptism and know that the grace of Christ is all that is needed to walk this life of faith you have been given. Join the cloud of witnesses and live in faith.
Lord, I have often made life more difficult than it needs to be. Guide me in the way of the Christ-life such that I might now and always live by Your provision. Let me not listen to the world, but to Your Word which endures forever. Guide me in the way of truth and help me to never err by chasing after the false things which tempt me that are of this world. Strengthen me in Your grace and hold me close to the truth You have revealed.
Lord Jesus, You have the words of everlasting life. Guide me in the way of truth so that I might now and for the rest of my life be guided by You and You alone. Help me join my voice with those who have gone before and be a witness of the amazing grace which is mine through faith in You. You have entrusted me with these things. Help me to be faithful in living out the hope and promise You give me through grace. Amen.
