Christian Soldier

If you are a Christian, you probably think about heaven sometimes. But most of the time, you focus on your daily routine. You probably think more about your problems than you think about how wonderful heaven will be.
In our Bible Reading today, Paul reminds Timothy that he should be a good Christian soldier. Paul tells Timothy to “share in the troubles that we have” (verse 3) and to please his commanding officer. Who was Timothy’s commanding officer? Jesus!
We should not be spending all our time thinking about things on earth. We should think about living with God forever. And, we should not be doing things that only please ourselves. Instead, we should be doing things that please God.
Be a good Christian soldier today. Think about the home that God has waiting for you. And do things that please God and bring praise and glory to Him.
