“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:8 KJV
OBSERVATIONS by Robert
As believers, there is a creed set before us to follow and maintain. Paul identified this path and all that is a part of that journey. In his last days in relating to Timothy, we as followers or disciples must fight the good fight as Paul did.
In knowing our Lord’s grace we will answer the ends of living. Paul demonstrates by being obedient to our Lord’s calling we should not fear death, knowing Yeshua has conquered it in our names.
The LORD is my shepherd I shall not want 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me thy rod and thy staff they comfort me 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil my cup runneth over 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalms 23: 1-6
As a believer and follower in faith fighting a good fight, we will know service to the Lord is being done, going through the difficulties of our warfare and being instrumental in carrying on the glorious victories of our exalted Redeemer over the powers of darkness, our life is a course.
Leading us to know and understand the importance of fervently keeping the faith and the doctrines of the gospel. The reality of this walk is our life as a follower of Yeshua is a warfare and a race. It is a good fight, good warfare, the cause is good and the victory is sure if we continue faithful and courageous. Noting, we must fight it out, and finish our course. We must not give over till we are made more than conquerors through him who hath loved us (Romans 8:37).
When our vapour begins to fade and our time to exit this life becomes apparent, it is a great comfort to a waning saint, we can look back upon our past life, and like Paul say, we have fought, kept the faith, and the grace of faith and fear not our eventual end to our journey in this world.
Knowing at the end of our days we are able to speak in this manner, what “comfort, unspeakable comfort, will it afford.” revealed in James 1:12 KJV
“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.”
Thank you, Lord, for having the Holy Spirit lead me to this well of living water, to share a refreshing drink with each individual who is seeking this wisdom to quench their spiritual thirst.
Blessings brothers and sisters may you all walk in the light which has been shared with you, comforts you, and lights the narrow path so hard to find and maintain.
Again please remember this is just a humble servant doing the bidding of Yeshua (Jesus). I pray for a safe journey forward. A walk-in God’s love and peace, and may the “SHARING OF YOUR LIGHT” in the Den of wolves be fruitful, remember, He is always with you if you hold His love in your heart forever.
