    Paul's strength in supporting Timothy is. Great. Timothy is my favourite disciple. I try to have an inner Timothy to be braver and trust in the lords grace and to live through. That grace. For without Jesus my life would be empty.

    If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless. James 1:26. So let's use our speech to bless and encourage, not to curse, slander.or gossip. Walking with God is helping others less fortunate. Teach as Jesus did when He walked this earth. Use your words today to Bless, encourage. Show your LOVE.

Thus CHRIST not only endured the hardness of hypocrites and the evil cross, but with FAITH in Our FATHER GOD, CHRIST with GOD CONQUERED the hardness of hypocrites and the evil cross (Rev. 1:18).
