“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”        

2 Timothy 4:7-8

The end of Paul’s writing! This is how he summed up his life. I want this to by my summary as well. The goal was the “crown of righteousness,” which was attained by:

“I know Whom I have believed…”            2 Timothy 1:12

Still one of my favorite verses in the Bible. This was Paul’s last letter and he wrote it to his young friend Timothy who had been mentored to take over after Paul’s work was done. I like his confidence, not in himself but in his God, and I like what that has come to mean for me. The whole verse says, “I know Whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him.”

“Train yourself to be godly.    1 Timothy 4:7,8

First of all, thanks to everyone who participated in Project Impact and endured the cool weather, the rain, and the “no need for sun glasses this year!” and STILL had a great time serving the people of Lincoln. You outdid yourselves again judging by all the positive comments from recipients of your kindness. A special thanks to Inonge for spearheading the day. No one except Kelli on this campus understands just how much work it took to make yesterday happen. Thank you Inonge.

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, with gratitude in your hearts to God.”   Colossians 3:16

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.”                Colossians 2:6-8
