Last Sunday’s Reflection

Paul says: “I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound!” (2 Timothy 2:9). This simply means that God is not contained into just one place. God moves.

God is moving around the world. And my Free Methodist friends scattered in Asia can attest to this. Filipinos in Vietnam and Taiwan. Congolese and Tongans in Australia. Fijian Free Methodists will soon follow the movement of the Spirit of God. This movement does not come without suffering. But, despite the pain and hardships, we know that God is there with us all the way.

Our NT Lectionary Reading is from 2 Timothy 2:8-15. Read these verses and ask yourself the questions: Is the word of God alive and moving in your life? What kind of suffering are you experiencing because of this movement? 

Remember: “If we endure, we will also reign with him” (2 Timothy 2:12a). Let us continue in God’s word.
