Keeping It Simple

5 But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry (2 Timothy 4).

Let’s keep it simple. Paul writes to “be sober in all things” (keep watch), “endure hardship” (keep the faith), “do the work of an evangelist” (keep busy), “fulfill your ministry” (keep on): four instructions to Timothy, yet could we do any better than to make these a part of our everyday lives as well?

Can we all not be alert, steadfast, a witness, and a servant for the glory of God?

Lord, help us This Day to be alert and keep watch, to be steadfast and keep the faith, to keep busy being a witness, and to keep on being a servant to You and others. Amen.
