60IN60 Day 44 - Tues Feb 14

It's Day 44 and we're in 2 Timothy 2.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 5 - We need to strive spiritually, not sit around lazily.

- Verses 11-13 - What's each statement mean? a. "died with Him" - Part of salvation is that we in our belief participate in His spiritual death, so we "die" spiritually and are raised to newness of life; b. "deny Him" - This would be unbelievers, not believers; c. "faithless" - If we drift away from Jesus, He will draw us back.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Your Questions and Comments:
- "Exodus 20:19 - It is such a privilege to be able to have a personal  relationship with God and go directly to Him. And to have our own copy of scriptures to read by ourselves. In Old Testament times, you had to go through the priest to reach God; and only certain people had scrolls of scriptures to read from, and you had to take their word for what you were being taught. Even today, some denominations require you to go to a church leader for prayer or forgiveness. We can pray to our Heavenly Father any time, anywhere, about anything. Praise God !  And we have so many resources to study from and learn - different bible translations, study guides, reference books, on line sermons that we can watch over and over.  I think sometimes Christians take the easier road - put a request on a prayer list or ask the Sunday school teacher the bible question, instead of putting forth some effort on our own.  Could it be that we have so much easily available to us, that we've become somewhat lazy?"
