All of us are called to proclaim the Gospel. Some of us are called to be church leaders. Others are called to other positions of responsibility. Every call includes a call to service to others. We are servants of the Lord High God and called to love one another.
July 2 2 Timothy 1:13-14

July 1 I Timothy 6:20
20 Timothy, guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge.

June 30 2 Timothy 2:22-24
22 Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 23 Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. 24A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people.
The Gospel calls for us to accept Jesus and become like Him. We need to study His life and actions and build a dynamic relationship with Jesus so that we might live like Him. Change from who we were to who the Lord wants us to be is required. Jesus is Lord.
June 29 2 Timothy 2:19
19 But God’s truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: “The LORD knows those who are his,” and “All who belong to the LORD must turn away from evil.”
We have a choice. We can choose to go our own way and follow the world. We can also choose God’s way and follow Jesus Christ. We can’t do both.
