We Have Everything We Need

Those who follow Jesus have been sent on a mission.  It is a dangerous, demanding, sacrifice-filled mission.  It is a purpose-filled, meaning-filled, and gratifying mission.  We are commanded by Jesus to be a part of saving world.  (No big deal, right!?)  When faced with this reality, we may wonder: "Do I have what it takes?"  We ask this question because we know that in ourselves and by ourselves we don't have what it takes.  But what we learn in our lesson this week from 2 Timothy 1:1-7 is that God, by his grace (not because we deserve it), has given us everything we need to fulfill our part in this great mission.  Just as St. Paul encourages young Timothy in this letter, so we can be encouraged and given courage to dive in fully into God's plan for us, which is our involvement in his mission to the world.     - 2 Timothy Series
