Message of the Day: Stand Firm!
“Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you.” (2 Timothy 1:13-14, NASB)
Paul’s imprisonment was the result of his steadfast upholding of the gospel. He has carried out the task God gave him. Therefore, it neither causes him shame nor weakens his confidence. He is convinced that God is able to preserve the gospel, no matter how severe the persecution (1:11-12).
In the same way, Timothy must stand firm and uphold or guard the message of truth that God has entrusted to him. We have the same task, we should stand firm and guard the teachings that we have received from God through our spiritual leaders, counselors, and teachers.
