Friday, July 14 – 2 Timothy 2:2

Jul 13, 2023

The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful people who will be able to teach others also.

 

All of us have received words of wisdom from another person at some point. Often when we come across someone in a similar scenario, we pass that same wisdom onto them. Acts 1:8 says, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and as far as the remotest part of the earth.” The moment Jesus spoke those words, a chain reaction started. As Christians lived as His witnesses, others learned about His truth and shared it with someone else. Even in 2023, thousands of years after that moment, we have received the truth of the gospel because of that chain reaction. Someone shared, another received, and people shared with another over and over throughout history. The gospel is the most precious treasure. We have the honor of being recipients of God’s grace and participants in this disciple-making process. No matter our resume, relationship status, culture, or experience, when we come to know Jesus, we are called to share this hope with others.

 

Where would you be if some people had not shared the hope of the gospel with you? Someone shared it with you for the first time and others have reminded you of its value when you lost your way. Our call is to store up the words of wisdom we have received and share them with others. As we do, we join Jesus in His mission on the earth.

 

  • Who shared the hope of the gospel with you?
  • When have you needed to be reminded of the truth of the gospel?
  • Pray and ask God to give you opportunity and boldness to share the message you have received with others.
