II Timothy 2:1-5 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. (2) And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. (3) Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. (4) No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. (5) And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

In sporting events the athletes must listen to the coach. No coach is going to let a player play who refuses to follow his instructions and is determined to run his own plays each time.

In the church we must follow the leadership of our Lord Jesus Christ and the leadership of His Holy Spirit. We must be sensitive to God's direction and sometimes we must just sit still and listen to God as He gives us our directions in a still small voice.

Always remember that God is in Charge. He is in control and He is the one to call the plays in life.

Live by the rules and find joy in it.

Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
