TIMOTHY AND TITUS Leadership Principle #8: RUN HARD!

Every morning I write in my journal of pray this statement, “Lift us up to higher ground thinking so that we will behave in ways that please You and is helpful to others.” Why? Because I am so human. I need to remind myself that life is not about myself. We are here to bring glory to God, put a smile on His face, and help others to do the same. We must run from anything that brings us down to worldview thinking.

Paul’s words to Timothy are full of wisdom and determination:
(Read all of chapter 6 and yesterday’s comments…)

“But you, Timothy, man of God: Run for your life from all this. Pursue a righteous life–a life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy. Run hard and fast in the faith. Seize the eternal life, the life you were called to, the life you so fervently embraced in the presence of so many witnesses.”

Why?

“I’m charging you before the life-giving God and before Christ, who took his stand before Pontius Pilate and didn’t give an inch: Keep this command to the letter, and don’t slack off. Our Master, Jesus Christ, is on his way. He’ll show up right on time, his arrival guaranteed by the Blessed and Undisputed Ruler, High King, High God.”

And one more plea that touches our hearts this morning…

“And oh, my dear Timothy, guard the treasure you were given! Guard it with your life. Avoid the talk-show religion and the practiced confusion of the so-called experts. People caught up in a lot of talk can miss the whole point of faith.”

“Overwhelming grace keep you!”
1 Timothy 6, Msg
