Day 7 From the Kitchen Table
II Timothy 4:6-8
For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
Here’s something to think about today. When we live our lives with purpose, there are bigger things to think about than danger and death. Living on purpose with promise will find us in the possession of the hand of God. And God is faithful, He will fulfill all His promises to us so why live another minute in fear? This day is a part of God’s plans and He will fit us into those plans as we trust in Him and His word. And there’s just something special about being able to say at the end of the day or at the end of a life, “I have kept the faith!” As we put those individual days together, we allow the Holy Spirit to orchestrate a life well-lived. I’ve seen people die and I’ve witnessed that a life well lived is that can step into eternity with no regrets, no remorse. You and I will never regret or be ashamed of fighting the good fight of faith. We can, God is with us.
