2 Timothy 1 (NIV84)


1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, according to the promise of life that is in Christ Jesus, 

2 To Timothy, my dear son: 

Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 


Paul addresses Timothy tenderly, referring to him as his “beloved child” and speaking God’s grace, mercy, and peace to him. As you speak to others, especially your fellow Christians, season what you say with God’s Word. Remind them of the grace that is theirs in Christ (e.g., “The Lord be with you”; “God’s peace to you”). God’s Word on our lips and in our hearts provides Gospel comfort to those around us. In addition, we ourselves benefit by the precious promises of the Gospel.


I pray: Give me an instructed tongue, O Lord, that I may know the Word that sustains the weary. Amen.



Edward A. Engelbrecht, The Lutheran Study Bible (St. Louis, MO: Concordia Publishing House, 2009), 2081.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
