Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season
Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. (2 Timothy 4:2)
Be bold enough to preach the Gospel. Be always ready everytime to preach the Gospel.
You will have to reprove sometimes. You’ll have to do some rebuking. And yes of course exorting. All of this to preach the Gospel while being patient and willing to teach.
Christ be with you as you preach the Gospel!
Don’t lose hope
Don’t lose hope for the Lord God is with you. He won’t sleep nor slumber for he always watches over those whom he loves. Like a mother he will caress you. Like a father he will embrace you. His mercy has no beginning and has no end. Hold on to his Word in times of troubles and pain. He keeps track of your tears. Jesus the Son of God has suffered like a human and even worse for you. So he is well acquainted with your sorrows and grief. Don’t bear your sadness alone. Cast your burden unto Jesus for he cares for you. Give away your pain to Jesus and he will turn your sorrow into joy. God did not send his Son to condemn the world but to save it. Happy are those who forsake their sins and turn to the Son of God. God will abundantly pardon and restore you. For in Christ there’s true forgiveness and true hope. Fear not your evil works when you come back to the heart of Christ. Because by the shedding of his blood on the cross the demands of the law against you have been met. May the Holy Spirit remind you of the words of Christ just like he did for the Apostles. Remember that in Christ your hope is from this life to the next forever. God gives you hope that is pure and will prevail against everything. Set your face towards the Savior of the world and seek his favor. Praise be to God forever. Amen.
