Under Gods Command

2nd Timothy 2:11-13 Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; (12) If we endure, we will also reign with him.  If we disown him, he will also disown us; (13) if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.

This is probably an early Christian hymn.  God is faithful to his children.  Although we many suffer great hardships here, God promises that someday we will live eternally with him.  What will this involve? It means believers will live in Christ’s kingdom.  This truth comforted Paul as he went through suffering and death.

Lets Bring it Home: Are you facing hardships? Don’t turn away from God-he promises you a wonderful future with him.  Jesus is faithful, He will stay by our side even when we have endured so much that we seem to have no faith left.  We may be faithless at times, but Jesus is faithful to his promise to be with us “to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20).  Refusing Christ’s help will break our communication with God, but he will never turn his back on us even thought we may turn our backs on him.
