What I read today
2 Chronicles 29; Job 3-4; Amos 3; John 14; 2 Timothy 4 & Titus 1
In his final words to Timothy, before Paul’s execution, Paul sends a message to Timothy. It’s loud and clear.
Things are going to get dicey my son.
People were scared. Nero was going after anyone who proclaimed that Jesus was the Messiah. He had blamed the Christians for burning parts of Rome. Now anyone who proclaimed Christ as Savior was subject to execution in some of the most horrible ways.
Paul’s message to Timothy was simple. Proclaim the good news no matter what.
It doesn’t matter what unbelievers say or do. Our mission is to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. Nothing more nothing less. We’re not to water it down or change it to make the world happy. We are just supposed to proclaim it.
It doesn’t matter if people don’t want to believe that Jesus is the only way to salvation. We need to keep preaching it.
It doesn’t matter if people don’t believe the Bible is the Word of God. We need to keep proclaiming it.
It doesn’t matter what the world thinks.
What God thinks is the only thing that really matters.
