My Accident- Burn


Recently I had an accident at home. I was cooking and the pan I was using didn’t have the best of handles. I was boiling some meat and took it out. My 1 year old daughter was in there and I asked my 3 older children to get her out of there,and I would be in there in a minute. I went to drain the boiling water out of the pan and some went in the sink and most went down the front of both my legs and feet. I throw the pan in the sink and yell HOT! I then turn and look down at my legs, I was wearing jeans, they were steaming and felt like the heat was increasing. So, when realized this, I stripped out of my jeans. I looked down and only my left leg had gotten hurt. My top of my left knee and the outer side of my lower leg. The lower leg had peeled the skin off but the knee was just red and hot. At that moment the knee hurt worse than the lower leg. My husband who was in bed and was about to get up to get ready to go to work came flying in the kitchen to see what was wrong. My children looked with fear in their eyes. I explained what happen and then started to cry. It hurt! I hobbled to the couch and sat down and we looked at it. I didn’t want to go to the hospital. It was almost time for him to go to work and I just didn’t want to. But, I changed my mind and we ended up going to the ER. When we got there they temporarily wrapped it. They checked my vital signs and temp and all. Everything was normal even my blood pressure, which was amazing since now my  whole leg hurt bad, On the scale of 1-10 it was a 10. After the checking all this stuff I sat in the waiting room. I was called back to a room where it was hard to walk to but I did. My pain was a 7. We sat in there for 4 hours before anyone came in there. Not once, did I fuss or complain or yell. They got in there and asked what happened and I explained. Then  they unwrapped it and told me I had received 1st degree burns on my knee and 2nd degree on my leg said they would scar. They then gave me a shot of morphine and proceeded to cut off the loose skin. Then they put medicine on it and wrapped it. Came back with prescription  Then they said the would give us dinner vouchers since we had been in there so long and been patient and hadn’t cussed them out, which I wouldn’t do anyways, and so my husband, my baby girl , and I got to eat a free meal. It was more than enough food too. I could have been upset several times but I chose not to. I could have been mean but I chose not to. I could have blamed God and cursed Him, but I didn’t chose to. Instead I praised God for all that He had saved me from. He saved me from it being my baby or other children. He saved it from both my legs and feet. He saved it from being bad all over. I look at it like this, I went through this for a reason and it might just have been so I can relate to someone else’s hurt. But, either way I am so thankful and am praising God. You might think I’m crazy or odd but that’s your opinion. I know that God is real and He surrounds me daily and that I am thankful.

Just Talkin’ #1: Looking Back


Image

So much to say, don’t know where to begin. There are so many things that I can think back on and say wow I didn’t know that then or see it like that. There are number of stories I can tell about my life that I can now see how God was there and moving on my behalf, when I had no idea and it might not have felt like He was. I know without a doubt that I can’t do anything without Him. I am so grateful that He loved and still does love me and wanted me for Himself. It is an amazing feeling to be truly loved. To be truly loved and know that the ONE that loves you will never hurt you, never leave you , never let you down, will always be there, will always hold you up when your down or you can’t go on. It wasn’t until I was seeking after the deeper things of God that I began to realize these things. Like I said earlier I now can see how God was Always there with me, sometimes I would shove Him away I didn’t know if I could believe in this and if I could trust Him like it talked about in the Bible. I later on realized I couldn’t go on without Him. He was everything to me and the passion that drove me. He was always the peace that I felt inside. I needed Him and the peace He gave me cause I had none anywhere else, everything was chaos, and falling apart.

Wilderness Experience


I know that in my life I have experienced, what seemed like a dry time in my walk with God and that He had left me all alone. Some of you  may have been or are experiencing this or something similar. This can be described  as a Wilderness Experience. What is a wilderness? Most of you know that it is any desolate, barren, or unpopulated area. In Hebrew the word for wilderness is Midbar.  The word wilderness from Dabar is in the sense of driving. A pasture that is an open field, whither cattle are driven;by implication a desert is also speech including its organs.

Psalm 63:1-11 (The Living Bible)

(v.1) O God, my God! How I search for you! How I search for you! How I thirst for you in a parched and weary land where there is no water. How I long to find you! (v.2)How I wish I could go your sanctuary to see your strength and glory, (v.3) for your love and kindness are better to me than life itself. How I praise you! (v.4) I will bless you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. (v.5) At last I shall be fully satisfied; I will praise you with great joy. (v.6) I lie awake at night thinking of you (v.7) of how much you have helped me- and how I rejoice through the night beneath the protecting shadow of your wings. (v.8) I follow close behind you, protected by your strong right arm (v.9) But those plotting to destroy me shall go down to the depths of hell (v.10) They are doomed to die by the sword, to become food for jackals. (v.11) But I will rejoice in God. All who trust in him exult, while liars shall be silenced. We also have to go through these steps in growing just like children: first you’re a baby, then a toddler, a young child, a pre-teen, a teenager, a young adult, adult, and finally a mature adult. These different stages are not always easy and pleasant but once you have overcome and moved on, they seem easier to endure. Even if we know the call we have to gain the knowledge and understanding for it to work properly. God is the parent, who has provided for and trained His children, then He places us down and backs away. He is still close to if we get hurt or need Him, He will be there to lift us up.

Matthew 14:25-33 (Living Bible)

(v.25) About four o’clock in the morning Jesus came walking on the water! (v.26) They screamed in terror, for they thought he was a ghost (v.27) But Jesus immediately spoke to them, reassuring them “Don’t be afraid!” he said. (v.28) Then Peter called to him: “Sir, if it is really you,tell me to come over to you, walking on the water.” (v.29) “All right,” the Lord said, “come along!” So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water towards Jesus. (v.30) But when he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me,Lord!” he shouted. (v.31) Instantly Jesus reached out his hand and rescued him. ” O man of little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?” (v.32) And when they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. (v.33) The others sat there, awestruck, “You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed.

Just as Jesus did for Peter when he was sinking, after he had been walking along on  the water, Jesus will help us. You noticed it said Jesus INSTANTLY reached out His hand and rescued him. Our God is an instant God, he doesn’t have to come up with a plan or wait for a certain number of days to accomplish something. He is a here and now God. We look at what we see and forget about what God has promised us and also gave us the We lose sight of God and our faith falls but He will pick us up and remind us to trust in Him. He is our shepherd and He will never lead us into a trap or somewhere that will hurt us. He might take us to a steep mountain with challenging areas in it but He will always guide us. We have to listen and be obedient to our master.

Acts 5:29 b (Living Bible) says: “We must obey God rather than men.”

Our flesh will say do what everyone else is doing while God is sending us in a different direction.

Psalm 44:17-26 (Living Bible)

(v.17) And all this has happened, Lord, despite our loyalty to you. We have not violated your covenant. (v.18) Our hearts have not deserted you! We have not left your path by a single step. (v.19) If we had, we could understand your punishing us in the barren wilderness and sending us into darkness and death (v.20) If we had turned away from worshipping our God, and were worshipping idols, (v.21) would God not know it? Yes, he knows the secrets of every heart. (v.22) But that is not our case. For we facing death threats constantly because of serving you! We are like sheep awaiting slaughter.(v.23) Waken! Rouse yourself! Don’t sleep, O Lord! Are we cast off forever? (v.24) Why do you look the other way? Why do you ignore our sorrows and oppression? (v.25) We lie face downward in the dust. (v.26) Rise up, O Lord, and come and help us. Save us by your constant love.

Sometimes we are in a wilderness. We don’t always realize it to begin with. It can often feel like we are being punished for something we did because we don’t realize where we are. But it is in the wilderness where we will cast down that we loved, which involves sanctification and put to death and bury the things that hold us back from God and His will. It is also a time of cleansing and renewing of the mind and spirit. God will instill in us new things, secret things, things of the Kingdom, if we allow to. This is also the place where growth takes place and we mature.

Isaiah 35:6 (Living Bible)

(v.6) The lame man will leap up like a deer, and those who could not speak will shout and sing! Springs will burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert.

In the wilderness is where signs, wonders, and miracles are birthed. It is a place with nothing but the mighty power of God. Also, we have to believe things to be as they are not to the physical eye.

Luke 5:16 (Living Bible)

(v.16) Jesus withdrew to the wilderness to spend alone time with God, grow, and to let God get the glory!

The reason that it is a wilderness is that it is just you and God. There are no distractions, and it is a time of intimacy. God wants us all to grow more in Him.

Hungry…What Kind Of Hungry Are You?


I am sure that we all know what it feels like when we are hungry. When we feel that hunger we do whatever it takes to satisfy that hunger. Let’s look at the word hungry for a minute. Hungry means having a desire,craving,or need for.Some more meaning are strongly or eagerly desirous, lacking needful or desirable elements, aggressively ambitious or competitive. This can be applied to the Spirit. God wants us to be absolutely hungry for Him. He wants us to seek and do whatever it takes to get more of Him in us,filling us up. We should strive to always be hungry for God and push ourselves to be filled more and more with Him and His ways.

In Psalm 34:8 it says, ” O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. ” In this scripture it states that we have to TASTE and see that the Lord is good, which implies that we were hungry and the only way to cure hunger is to eat. So, we are to seek Him. The ways we are to seek Him is in prayer, reading His Word(The Bible), and fasting. This is how we will taste and see that the Lord is good.

In Psalm 107:5 it says, ” Hungry and thirsty, their souls fainted in them.” Fainted means lacking strength, clarity,boldness,or courage. This is another reason we have to seek God and He will feed us who are hungry and fill us up and make us strong in Him and His Ways.

In Psalm 107:9 it says,”For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.” Goodness means state or quality of being good, moral excellence, virtue,kindly feeling,kindness,or generosity. Our souls long for the things of God. We were created in His image which is Spirit. We were created to have fellowship with Him daily.
In Psalm 34:10 it says,” The young lions do lack,and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.”When we first got saved we had a desire and hunger for God unlike anything we had experienced. We lacked the knowledge and strength that God would give us from seeking Him. It was something that we had to walk into, it didn’t just happen. If we seek God we won’t desire just things but the things of God no matter how pleasing they may seem.

In Luke 1:53 it says,”He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath sent empty away.” There are people that call themselves seeking God but it is just a show and they won’t be rewarded or filled with the goodness of God. Those who truly seek after Him will receive the good things He has to offer them. He loves to see the devotion of His people to Him. God loves to be exalted above everything and that is how it should be.

There are a lot of souls out there that are hungry for God and don’t even know it. They know they are searching for something and haven’t figured out that it is God. That is why us as the “church” or “body” are to be out doing things and telling people about the God that we love and hunger after. People should see the hunger that we have for God and it should just be contagious. We should be showing them how to fill up that hunger with Him and not the things that please our flesh. Then there are those of you who have become complacent and have allowed that hunger to pretty much die out. You have killed it and your Spirit is suffocating. You need a good shaking to make you hungry again.

Just think about how privileged we are here in this country. We can openly serve God and most people try to hide or suffocate the God in us. They say to themselves it is okay to be a Christian and serve God openly on Sunday and at church but not during the week or out in public, people might talk about me and not like me. This is a lot of people’s mentality today. In other countries they can be killed for talking about God, praying,meeting at an underground church, or having a Bible, these are all things that most of us take for granite. Those people have a hunger for God and they don’t let anything stop them from being filled up with God. They have a true passion and desire for God and His Ways. We should all get to that place.

If your married, you remember when you first met your spouse, that you desired to spend all your time, energy, effort, and love with them and studying them. We should be experiencing the same things for God. We can always give God more, even if you think you have given it all to Him. I can assure you there is something or someplace in your life that He wants you to give Him. We are to be so hungry for God and His ways that we surrender our ways and thoughts and take on His.

You Have A Calling…


God‘s got a call on each one of our lives. God is calling you to do the things that He has planned out for you and your life before you were born. In Jeremiah 1:5 it says this:

Jeremiah 1:5 NLT“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the world.”

 

This shows us that God has a unique plan for us. He has allowed us to make the decisions that will lead up to what He has had planned out for us all along. We go through things to be able to relate and testify to others who are going through the same stuff that we have been through. We are then proof that God can bring you out of the situation and turn it all around for the good. But you have to really desire God and what He wants for you and your life. God will reveal to you the area that He has called you to. He will not call you to something that He hasn’t prepared you for.

 

There is a price to pay for the calling and truly walking in it. You have to truly want it. The journey for it will not be easy but it will be worth it. In all things remember what all Jesus paid for us. We are so unworthy compared to Him. So, the things we will face are so small in comparison but are worth it also. We will have freedom in God and we will help lead others to that freedom. So we need to always look to God even when we are paying the price for the call on our lives. It can be tough,I know. There are times that you might just want to quit. That is when you have to push yourself and think about the one person that is relying on you to tell them about Jesus so that they won’t go to hell for all eternity.

 

The narrow road that says a lot in itself. There are a lot of things that can’t be taken down the narrow road. The Bible talks about the narrow road in Matthew 7:13-14 it says this:

Matthew 7:13-14 NLT

 

13 “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose the easy way. 14 But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it.

This tells us that we have to life holy sanctified lives to make it down that narrow road. The sacrifices that we make here on earth will be rewarded far more greatly in heaven.

 

Talk to God today and listen to Him. He will talk back and see what He has planned for you and your life.

Words…Can Hurt?


The tongue is a very powerful weapon.It says in Proverbs 18:21(NLT) The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.

You can build someone up or tear them down  by the words we say.The words we say can really hurt someone. You know the saying “Sticks And Stones May Break My Bones But Words Can Never Hurt Me“. That is a complete lie! Ask anybody that has been hurt by what someone said. They would have wanted the person hit them than to have said the things they did. Words are planted in us. Negative or hurtful words stay and linger with us, they cause more damage. Then, every time  the words come back to remembrance, it causes a new deeper pain/wound. We should only speak the truth. Also, only speak things that will glorify God.

Ephesians 4:29-32 (NKJV)

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.

32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have talked to people who are new in Christ and still have trouble cussing. They asked if I knew a good way or how did I stop cussing. I told them to every time a cuss word comes to mind replace it with something good like, Praise God, I love Jesus, Thank you Jesus, Hallelujah, or other good things,etc. Something bad might slip but when it does immediately say something positive, and ask for forgiveness and help from God. Also, read your Bible and pray. It says in, Matthew 15:18 (NLT) But the words you speak come from the heart–that’s what defiles you.

So, cleanse your heart from the filth and replace it will holiness. It says in, Matthew 12:36 (NLT) And I tell you this, that you must give an account on judgment day of every idle word you speak.

 

So, in ending, please be careful in the words you say. It says in,Proverbs 21:23 (NKJV)Whoever guards his mouth and tongue Keeps his soul from troubles.

Think before you speak. Ask yourself would it hurt you if someone else told you what you are about to say.


Stand Firm!!!


1 Corinthians 16:13 (NLT) Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.

Stand Firm! These are very important words. As a Christian Believer, we are called to Stand Firm. There are a lot of people in the world getting persecuted for their beliefs. You need to make sure that what you believe is worth dying for and stand firm in what you believe.

Isaiah 7:9 b (NIV)…If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.'”

 

Daniel 3:1-30(NLT)

Nebuchadnezzar’s Gold Statue

1King Nebuchadnezzar made a gold statue ninety feet tall and nine feet widea and set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon2Then he sent messages to the high officers, officials, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates, and all the provincial officials to come to the dedication of the statue he had set up. 3So all these officialsb came and stood before the statue King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

4Then a herald shouted out, “People of all races and nations and languages, listen to the king’s command! 5When you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes, and other musical instruments,c bow to the ground to worship King Nebuchadnezzar’s gold statue. 6Anyone who refuses to obey will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.”

7So at the sound of the musical instruments,d all the people, whatever their race or nation or language, bowed to the ground and worshiped the gold statue that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.

8But some of the astrologerse went to the king and informed on the Jews. 9They said to King Nebuchadnezzar, “Long live the king! 10You issued a decree requiring all the people to bow down and worship the gold statue when they hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes, and other musical instruments. 11That decree also states that those who refuse to obey must be thrown into a blazing furnace. 12But there are some Jews—Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego—whom you have put in charge of the province of Babylon. They pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They refuse to serve your gods and do not worship the gold statue you have set up.”

13Then Nebuchadnezzar flew into a rage and ordered that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego be brought before him. When they were brought in, 14Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you refuse to serve my gods or to worship the gold statue I have set up? 15I will give you one more chance to bow down and worship the statue I have made when you hear the sound of the musical instruments.f But if you refuse, you will be thrown immediately into the blazing furnace. And then what god will be able to rescue you from my power?”

16Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. 17If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”

The Blazing Furnace


19Nebuchadnezzar was so furious with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that his face became distorted with rage. He commanded that the furnace be heated seven times hotter than usual. 20Then he ordered some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. 21So they tied them up and threw them into the furnace, fully dressed in their pants, turbans, robes, and other garments. 22And because the king, in his anger, had demanded such a hot fire in the furnace, the flames killed the soldiers as they threw the three men in. 23So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, securely tied, fell into the roaring flames.

24But suddenly, Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisers, “Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?”

“Yes, Your Majesty, we certainly did,” they replied.

25“Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a godg!”

26Then Nebuchadnezzar came as close as he could to the door of the flaming furnace and shouted: “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!”So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fire.

27Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke!

28Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him. They defied the king’s command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. 29Therefore, I make this decree: If any people, whatever their race or nation or language, speak a word against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, they will be torn limb from limb, and their houses will be turned into heaps of rubble. There is no other god who can rescue like this!”

30Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to even higher positions in the province of Babylon.

 

We see that in Daniel 3 that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego did not compromise their faith and what they believed in. They stood firm. They knew that God would be with them in every situation, whether it was to be saved from persecution or death. This is a great example of how we should live our lives.

Plant Your Roots Deep


The definition of root is (botany) the usually underground organ that lacks buds or leaves or nodes; absorbs water and mineral salts; usually it anchors the plant to the ground.

What do roots do? They grab the soil and hang on or dig in and won’t let go.  They keep going deeper and deeper seeking  better nutrients. We should be like the roots. Christ  is that soil and we need to plant our roots deep in the soil so that we can’t be removed.  The deeper we are in Christ or seek after Him the better nutrients we get out of the Word and from Him. It is a never ending process. We must continue to grow as the roots do. If we stop we will die off and be pulled out just like a plant that roots have died.

There are three major functions of roots:

1) absorption of water and inorganic nutrients

2) anchoring of the plant body to the ground

3) storage of food and nutrients.

Here are the 3 ways we can relate to the roots:

1) Accept Jesus in our hearts and absorb  Him and His Word ( He is the Living Water)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Much fasting …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… and much prayer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3)Reading , Studying, and Memorizing  the Bible ( the Word of God)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colossians 2:6-15 (NLT)

6And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him.

7Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

8Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.

9For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.

10So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

11When you came to Christ, you were “circumcised,” but not by a physical procedure. Christ performed a spiritual circumcision—the cutting away of your sinful nature.

12For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.

13You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins.

14He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.

15In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.

Thankfulness


Be thankful! Even if you have had a rough time this year, month, week, or day, still be thankful.

This is the time of year that people kind of notice and give credit to being thankful for things in their lives.

 

Can you list things in your life that you are thankful for?

We are a spoiled nation and have so many opportunities  that a lot of other do not get the chance to do.Even the people who are homeless, alone, abused, and abandoned can be thankful. Sometime some of the people in these situations would rather be dead than alive, so they wouldn’t have to suffer. But everything we do in life is for a reason. We struggle so that we can help others who are going through the same thing. We all should be thankful for one thing if nothing else. That one thing is Jesus that He came to earth, died for our sins, was buried and went to hell, got the keys of hell and paid the price so that you and I wouldn’t have to, and rose again(showing that nothing can hold back the Almighty and His Power). Yes, be thankful we have such a Merciful Lord who would be willing to do all of that just for You and I.

I have been blessed a lot! No, I do not have a lot of physical things and I struggle financially a lot. But, I have been so blessed. I have my life, I am saved through Jesus Christ, my husband, my children, my other family, my friends, my church, my church family, evangelism, a happy spirit, and the list could go on and on. All of these things no amount of money could buy and Only Jesus can bring the Happiness that comes with all these things.

Praise Jesus and thank Him that Today that He gave you one more day to live, so make it worth it. If you have not given your life to God, please consider it, for today may be your last and eternity is a long time to feel pain and suffering when you could have peace and joy. If you have given your life to God, don’t just thank Him today. Thank Him all day every day.

Go out today and tell  somebody that you love them and your thankful for them being here, even if it is a complete stranger. That simple statement could change someone’s life.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless!

 

God Is Faithful


We  should be happy in serving Jesus Christ. Jesus did so much for us.We know that as Christians we are going to suffer and be persecuted for what we believe. But, it is all for the greater glory. All of this will glorify God and we will receive an eternal reward that is far great than any earthly reward. We have to stay focused on Jesus and His ways. Live our lives according to His word and after His example( a life of holiness).

2 Timothy 2:8-14(New Living Translation)

8Always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News I preach. 9And because I preach this Good News, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. But the word of God cannot be chained.10So I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chosen.

11This is a trustworthy saying:If we die with him,we will also live with him.

12If we endure hardship,we will reign with him.If we deny him,he will deny us.

13If we are unfaithful,he remains faithful,for he cannot deny who he is.

14Remind everyone about these things, and command them in God’s presence to stop fighting over words. Such arguments are useless, and they can ruin those who hear them.
