THE WORD FOR TODAY
2 Timothy 1-2 (Click to Read Today’s Word at Biblegateway.com)
Truth for Today
1 Timothy 1:12 12 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.
I heard a song about a year ago titled, “Unashamed Love”. The lyrics are incredible and powerful.
You're calling me to lay aside the worries of my day
To quiet down my busy mind and find a hiding place
I open up my heart and let my spirit worship Yours
I open up my mouth and let a song of praise come forth
Worthy, You are worthy
Of a child-like faith And of my honest praise
And of my unashamed love Of a holy life
And of my sacrifice And of my unashamed love
When I read those words along with God’s Word for today I am compelled to challenge each one of us to an “Unashamed Love” as walk, worship and work this day.
Paul was not ashamed of Jesus…he lived out his testimony before men no matter what the cost because he “believed” and was “persuaded” that Jesus is able to “keep all that is committed to Him until that Day”.
These are not days for fearful…timid…shy believers. These are days to be fill with “UNASHAMED LOVE” for Him who died for us.
LORD, I am ready to enter the day before me…strengthen me that I may be bold for YOU…hold me so that I may be courageous in the face of the scoffer…protect that the enemy cannot win in my life today…help me live unashamed for Your glory…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
