S – But as for you, exercise self-control in everything, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry
2 Timothy 4:5 CSB
O – Paul turns the crosshairs and puts them directly on Timothy for this statement. “Self Control” – be sober, watch all that goes on. “Endure hardships”- persevere in affliction trouble in all things daily. “Evangelist” – be prepared to share the gospel. “Fulfill your ministry” – accomplish your service daily.
A – This is a great challenge for us today. We can relate to all of this. Sharing the gospel doesn’t have to be a message behind a pulpit. It is something we share though our lives – our words and actions. We can do this!
R – Lord, help me to do this today.
