Proper 25 (30) 2016 – 2 Timothy 4:16-17a

Thursday, October 20, 2016 

2 Timothy 4:16-17aAt my first defense no one came to my support, but all deserted me.  May it not be counted against them! But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it.

‘In my time of need, no one stood by me but you, God.  Don’t think less of them, God.’  What a powerful statement of forgiveness Paul is making in this passage today!

Prayer: Gracious God, forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.  Amen.
