KEY VERSE: At my first defense, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. – 2 Timothy 4:16

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: 2 Timothy 4:9–22

9 Do your best to come to me soon. 10 For Demas, fin love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, iTitus to Dalmatia.

11 Luke alone is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, for he is very useful to me for ministry.

INVEST IN IRAs, SECURE YOUR FUTURE

13 When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments.

14 Alexander the coppersmith did me great harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds.

15 Beware of him yourself, for he strongly opposed our message.

16 At my first defense no one came to stand by me, but all deserted me. May it not be charged against them!

17 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. 18 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.

19 Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.

20 Erastus remained at Corinth, and I left Trophimus, who was ill, at Miletus.

21 Do your best to come before winter. Eubulus sends greetings to you, as do Pudens and Linus and Claudia and all the brothers.3

22 The Lord be with your spirit. grace be with you.4

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Psalms 57–59; Romans 4

1 AUGUST, 2022 – ODB FOR TODAY’S INSIGHT: Second Timothy, Paul’s final letter, was written from prison (2 Timothy 2:9). While we don’t know the specific details of his imprisonment, the apostle’s situation was severe—he seemed to believe his death was imminent (4:6–7).

This context contributes to the urgent tone throughout this letter. Paul felt deeply the need to communicate to his protégé Timothy a clear vision of faithfulness to Jesus and the gospel amid suffering—and to warn against abandoning the gospel for the world’s comforts (v. 10). Paul hoped he would see Timothy again (v. 21), perhaps for the last time.

MESSAGE 

Kelly was battling brain cancer when the COVID-19 crisis hit. Then fluid developed around her heart and lungs, and she had to be hospitalized again. Her family couldn’t visit because of the pandemic. Her husband, Dave, vowed to do something.

Gathering loved ones together, Dave asked them to make large signs with messages. They did. Wearing masks, twenty people stood on the street outside the hospital holding signs: “Best Mom!” “Love You.” “We are with u.” With the help of a nurse, Kelly made her way to a fourth-floor window. “All we could see was a facemask and a waving hand,” her husband posted on social media, “but it was a beautiful facemask and waving hand.”

Late in his life, the apostle Paul felt alone as he languished in a Roman prison. He wrote to Timothy, “Do your best to get here before winter” (2 Timothy 4:21). Yet Paul wasn’t totally alone. “The Lord stood at my side and gave me strength,” he said (v. 17). And it’s also apparent that he had some encouraging contact with other believers. “Eubulus greets you,” he said to Timothy, “and so do Pudens, Linus, Claudia and all the brothers and sisters” (v. 21).

We’re created for community, and we feel that most keenly when we’re in crisis. What might you do for someone who may feel entirely alone today?

REFLECT: When have you felt most alone? How have you sensed God’s presence during times of separation from loved ones?

PRAY: Thank You, dear Father, for the gift of Your Spirit’s comfort, and for the community of believers, You’ve brought into my life.
