“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:14-15).
In our age, so many grow up learning the faith only to later deny it. This is the way of the world, but it does not need to be the way you live. You have been called with a holy calling and you have learned what the truth is. Will you live into that truth, or be pulled away by the insanity of this world which denies objective truth? Become wise for your sake and for the sake of others.
Lord, what great mystery You present here. There are those who learn and then abandon what they have learned. There are those who hear a few words and believe. Jesus prayed in the Garden and gave thanks for not losing one. In the mystery of the faith unfolding before me, keep my eye on the prize. You have told me that if I believe in You I would not perish, but have everlasting life. Guide me into that life, Lord.
Lord Jesus, help my unbelief. You know the things I have learned. You know the things I need to unlearn. You know where I need to be more like You. You know where I am far from You. You know what needs to happen so that my faith would be made complete. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of everlasting life in order that I may now and always be in the grip of Your grace and mercy. Amen.
