“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Timothy 2:11-12

TODAY’S WORD…

.

If we have died with Him, then we shall live with Him;

if we hold firm, then we shall reign with Him.

.

– 2 Timothy 2:11-12

REFLECTION…

.

By holding firm and dying to sin,

we will stay out of the darkness and bask in the light.

We will have been born into a new life.

.

By holding firm and dying to sin,

we will rise to a life of grace,

and, we will reign forever with Christ, our Lord.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord, help me hold firm

against all that the world throws at me.

Help me hold firm

against the world’s deceitful suggestions that this is the only life I have,

so I should just live it and satisfy my longings, no matter what.

.

My Lord, my Maker,

help me take a broader look at who I am, and why I am.

Help me stop looking selfishly at the now

and, rather, strengthen my determination

to live and work towards the hereafter that You have planned for me,

towards being with You forever.

.

Amen.
