No Backing Down

today's reading.
2 Timothy 1:1-14    Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God according to the promise of the life that is in Christ Jesus...
2 Timothy 1:1-14

2 Timothy 1:1-14think about it.
How would you describe Paul's perspective as he awaits execution (1:1,10-14)? What does he commend in Timothy (1:3-5)? What encouragement and instruction does he give to Timothy (1:6-12)? What do you need courage to face today? How can you draw it from this passage?

the blog.
We'll be spending this week in 2 Timothy lining up with Dr. Kroll's brand new radio series titled 2 Timothy: Paul's Encouraging Words. (Join us if you can!) As we start 2 Timothy Paul is giving instructions to Timothy and encouraging him to be bold for the Lord. In verse 8 Paul hits him head on with these words, "Do not be ashamed about the testimony of our Lord. . ." A good challenge for Timothy, and for us today.

So what does being bold for the Lord look like or mean for you? What can/will you do this week to take your boldness for Christ to the next level? Tami W.
