December 2023 (Discharge the Duties of Your Ministry)

Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers. Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (2 Tim 2:14-15)


In all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.”(Titus 2:7-8)



General Reflections:

In Paul’s second letter to Timothy (2 Tim 2:14-15), he instructed him to remind the community not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of hearers. He urged Timothy to do his best and present himself to God as one “approved”, as a worker who does not need to be ashamed and correctly handles the word of truth.


In St Paul’s letter to Titus (2:7-8), he instructed him to be a pattern of good works, in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, and sound speech so that no one can say evil to him or about him.


These instructions, urging and encouragements also apply to us as disciples of Jesus.
