As I remember your tears, I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
 
- 2 Timothy 1:4-6
 
Do your best to come to me soon. For Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia. Luke alone is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, for he is very useful to me for ministry. Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus. When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments. Alexander the coppersmith did me great harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. Beware of him yourself, for he strongly opposed our message. At my first defense no one came to stand by me, but all deserted me. May it not be charged against them! But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion's mouth. The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
 
- 2 Timothy 4:9-18

    Make Yourself At Home: Being Heaven’s Front Door
    Series: Welcome Home
    Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

    Building on Bedrock: The Structure of Home
    Series: Welcome Home
    According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it. For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw—each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.

    All Good Things: The Result of Discipleship

    A Song of Ascents.

    Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord,     who stand by night in the house of the Lord! Lift up your hands to the holy place     and bless the Lord!

    May the Lord bless you from Zion, he who made heaven and earth!

    E Pluribus Unum: The Disciple in Community

    A Song of Ascents. Of David.

    Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the Lord has commanded the blessing, life forevermore.

    Stopping By Church on a Sunday Morning: The Disciple’s Hope

    A Song of Ascents.

    Remember, O Lord, in David's favor,     all the hardships he endured, how he swore to the Lord     and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob, “I will not enter my house     or get into my bed, I will not give sleep to my eyes     or slumber to my eyelids, until I find a place for the Lord,     a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

    Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah;     we found it in the fields of Jaar. “Let us go to his dwelling place;     let us worship at his footstool!”

    Arise, O Lord, and go to your resting place,     you and the ark of your might. Let your priests be clothed with righteousness,     and let your saints shout for joy. For the sake of your servant David,     do not turn away the face of your anointed one.

    The Lord swore to David a sure oath     from which he will not turn back: “One of the sons of your body     I will set on your throne. If your sons keep my covenant     and my testimonies that I shall teach them, their sons also forever     shall sit on your throne.”

    For the Lord has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his dwelling place: “This is my resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provisions; I will satisfy her poor with bread. Her priests I will clothe with salvation, and her saints will shout for joy. There I will make a horn to sprout for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed. His enemies I will clothe with shame, but on him his crown will shine.”

    Heavy Loads: The Responsibility of Leadership
    And when he returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home. And many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even at the door. And he was preaching the word to them. And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” And immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they thus questioned within themselves, said to them, “Why do you question these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise, take up your bed and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic— “I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.” And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”

    Granite Busters: The Disciple’s Legacy

    Lord, my heart is not lifted up;     my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things     too great and too marvelous for me. But I have calmed and quieted my soul,     like a weaned child with its mother;     like a weaned child is my soul within me.

    O Israel, hope in the Lord from this time forth and forevermore.

    Fuzzy Memories: The Disciple’s Great Need

    Psalm 130

     

    Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!     O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive     to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

    If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,     O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness,     that you may be feared.

    I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,     and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord     more than watchmen for the morning,     more than watchmen for the morning.

    O Israel, hope in the Lord!     For with the Lord there is steadfast love,     and with him is plentiful redemption. And he will redeem Israel     from all his iniquities.

    Snatching Victory: The Disciple in Crisis
    Psalm 129
     
    “Greatly have they afflicted me from my youth”—     let Israel now say— “Greatly have they afflicted me from my youth,     yet they have not prevailed against me. The plowers plowed upon my back;     they made long their furrows.” The Lord is righteous;     he has cut the cords of the wicked. May all who hate Zion     be put to shame and turned backward! Let them be like the grass on the housetops,     which withers before it grows up, with which the reaper does not fill his hand     nor the binder of sheaves his arms, nor do those who pass by say,     “The blessing of the Lord be upon you!     We bless you in the name of the Lord!”
