2 Timothy 2:11-13

2 Timothy 2:11-13 – Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him. If we disown Him, He will also disown us; if we are faithless, He will remain faithful, for He cannot disown Himself.

           Here we see two sides of the same coin. We have a choice to make. Our position with God depends on that choice. First we see the good side of things. If we join with Christ in His death we will also join with Him in life. No, the death part may not look too appealing in itself, but life with Christ is amazing. To think about living life hand in hand with Jesus is the best motivator to endure through dying to ourselves.
           When we endure we also receive this promise from God: we will also reign with Him. It is written that trouble may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning. As we push through the hard times we know that we have a great joy waiting for us on the other side, because God is always faithful.
           Even when we are faithless, God still remains faithful. That His nature; that is who He is. We do, however, also have to look at the other side of the coin. In verse 12 we are told that is we disown Him He will also disown us. Don’t turn your back on God. That is the only thing that can separate you from Him: a conscious choice to leave. He will not leave; He is always there; He is always faithful.
If you have turned your back on God it is not too late. Turn back to Him and know that He Loves you and wants you to reign in life with Christ. It’s your choice. Make the decision to return and join into life with Christ today.
