In You…

 

Demas has deserted me…
Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm…
The first time I was brought before the judge, no one came with me…
From 2 Timothy 4

Do you think if only you could become great like the apostle Paul, you’ll have it made? maybe someday crowds and friends will surround you and you’ll live a cozy, successful life?

Think again. Paul was a loving, godly man who devoted his life connecting everyone with Jesus. Demas likely walked with Paul, but decided this life was more appealing. Alexander opposed Paul and tried to take him down. When Paul appeared in court, none of his friends came to support him.

What did Paul have in him that no matter what happened around him, he remained godly with grace and love toward every person and circumstance? Who is this God that Paul could trust even his future with?

Will you search for that God?

Phillip
