Under Gods Command

2nd Timothy 2:1-2 You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.  (2) And the things you also be qualified to teach others. 

How can someone be strong in grace? Grace means undeserved favor. Just as we are saved by grace (Ephesians 2:8, 9), we should live by grace (Colossians 2:6). This means trusting completely in Christ and his power, and not trying to live for Christ in our strength alone.

2:2 If the church were to consistently follow this advice, it would expand geometrically as well-taught believers would teach others and commission them, in turn, to teach still others.

Lets Bring it Home:  Receive and utilize Christ’s power. He will give you the strength to do his work.  Disciples need to be equipped to pass on their faith; our work is not done until new believers are able to make disciples of others (see Ephesians 4:12, 13).
