This weeks readings and question of the week:
Take time to mediate on God’s word and prepare for worship this Sunday. And as you meditate on them, consider the Question of the Week:
What do I have to do this week to accomplish “all I have been commanded” so that next week I can say “I have done what I was obligated to do?”
Habakkuk 1:1-3, 2:2-4
PSALM PS 95:1-2, 6-7, 8-9
2 TIMOTHY 1:6-8, 13-14
2 Timothy 1:7-8
For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord, nor of me, a prisoner for his sake; but bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear – A timorous and servile spirit. This is said in order to encourage Timothy, who was not improbably modest and diffident.
But of power – Power to encounter foes and dangers; power to bear up under trials; power to triumph in persecutions. That is, it is the nature of the gospel to inspire the mind with holy courage;
And of love – Love to God and to the souls of men. The tendency of This, also, is to “cast out fear”, and to make the mind bold and constant. Nothing will do more to inspire courage, to make a man fearless of danger, or ready to endure privation and persecution, than “love.” The love of country, and wife, and children, and home, makes the most timid bold when they are assailed; and the love of Christ and of a dying world nerves the soul to great enterprises, and sustains it in the deepest sorrows.
