If We are Faithless, He Remains Faithful

The saying is sure: If we have died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he will also deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful–for he cannot deny himself. From the second letter to St. Timothy. Continuing in the second letter to St. Timothy, we read St. Paul exhorting St. Timothy to keep the

A Spirit of Power, Love, and Self-Discipline

“God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.” from the second letter to St. 2 Timothy 1:1-14 This is probably the last letter written by St. Paul, during the time of his second imprisonment in Rome, perhaps from 66 to 68 AD. He knew that he would not escape punishment this time, and that he was nearing

Fight the Good Fight of the Faith

“Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” From the letter to St. Timothy, As we continue our look at the first letter of St. Paul to St. Timothy, we notice language that is rich with theology, and full of encouragement to the bishop as he ministers among

The Prayer of the Righteous

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone…” From the first letter to St. Timothy. This week we continue reading the first letter to St. Timothy, in the second chapter. This bit is a teaching from St. Paul on prayer. The tradition handed down to us by the Church of England is contained in the Book of Common Prayer. The first prayer

Christ Jesus Came Into the World to Save Sinners

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners– of whom I am the foremost.” from the letter to St. Timothy. The first and second letters to Timothy, along with the letter to Titus form what are called Paul’s Pastoral Epistles. Timothy is first mentioned in the 16th chapter of the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Paul and Barnabas had a falling out after a sharp disagreement over

Philemon and Onesimus

“When I remember you in my prayers, I always thank my God because I hear of your love for all the saints and your faith toward the Lord Jesus.” from the letter to Philmon. The letter to Philemon, from which we read today, is a very interesting letter, unlike any other of the letters of St. Paul. It starts off with a personal greeting; “To Philemon our dear friend and

Pride goes before Destruction

“Remember your leaders, those who spoke the word of God to you; consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” From the letter to the Hebrews. We have been reading a section of the Letter to the Hebrews, and for the last two weeks we have heard about fire as a purifying, refining force. “Our God

An Unshakable Kingdom with an Offensive Line

“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe; for indeed our God is a consuming fire.” from the letter to the Hebrews. Last week we heard these words from the Gospel according to St. Luke; “Jesus said, “I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it

Pursue peace with everyone, and the holiness without which no one will see the Lord

“Pursue peace with everyone, and the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.” From the Letter to the Hebrews. Last Sunday we read from the Letter to the Hebrews, Chapter 11, about faith. Let me refresh your memories of the key verse in this section: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval. By

God’s chosen ones

“As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.” From the letter of St. Paul to the Colossians. This short letter from St. Paul to the believers in Colossae, is full of good advice for Christian living. Colossae was in the region of Phrygia and Galatia, in Asia Minor. In the book of the Acts of the Apostles, St. Luke records some details
