Today’s Meditation (2.16.18)

2 Timothy 4:1-5 (AMP)

I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2 preach the word [as an official messenger]; be ready when the time is right and even when it is not [keep your sense of urgency, whether the opportunity seems favorable or unfavorable, whether convenient or inconvenient, whether welcome or unwelcome]; correct [those who err in doctrine or behavior], warn [those who sin], exhort and encourage [those who are growing toward spiritual maturity], with inexhaustible patience and [faithful] teaching. 3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to support the errors they hold, 4 and will turn their ears away from the truth and will wander off into myths and man-made fictions [and will accept the unacceptable]. 5 But as for you, be clear-headed in every situation [stay calm and cool and steady], endure every hardship [without flinching], do the work of an evangelist, fulfill [the duties of] your ministry.

Hebrews 2:4 (AMP)

Today’s Meditation (2.9.18)

Psalm 50:1-6 (AMP)

The mighty One, God, the Lord, has spoken, and summoned the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting [from east to west].
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth. 3
May our God come and not keep silent; fire devours before Him, and around Him a mighty tempest rages. 4 He summons the heavens above, and the earth, to judge His people: 5 “Gather My godly ones to Me, those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.”6 And the heavens declare His righteousness, for God Himself is judge.

Selah.
