Week of August 12 - Day 1

Scripture to Memorize: 2 Timothy 2:1

You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus

Day 1 Read: 2 Timothy 2:1-2

You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, 2 and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.

Reflect: What advice did Paul give Timothy? What does it mean to “be strong in the grace” of Christ Jesus?

Consider: The Greek word for “child” or “son” is teknon which is a strong term of endearment and affection. Paul considered Timothy as his own son.

Respond: If you’ve been mentored, what was that relationship like? If you haven’t had a mentor, who has been a spiritual leader or example in your life? How are you carrying on their legacy of upholding and sharing the gospel?
