2 Timothy 1:13-14 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
The Apostle Paul writes to Timothy and praises him because he has remained true to the teachings of Christ. During this time, some other disciples who had been following Jesus fell away from faith in Christ.
Our faith will always be under attack. Guard your faith in Jesus Christ every day. Satan wants to rob, steal, and destroy the life Jesus died to bring you; deception is one of the enemy’s favorite weapons. We cannot allow the world to confuse us or draw us into compromising the foundation of our faith. Our faith is built on the personhood and work of Jesus Christ to redeem us from sin; a Gift from God. Keep Jesus Christ your first love!
2 Timothy 1:13-14
13 Now follow the example of the correct teaching I gave you, and let the faith and love of Christ Jesus be your model. 14 You have been trusted with a wonderful treasure. Guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit, who lives within you.
Prayer: Father, help me to stay true to your teachings about love and faith. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
