I love Paul’s style of introducing himself in his letters (2 Tm 1:1-3): his role as Christ’s disciple, why he’s writing, and compassionate greetings. You know his eyes are “….on the Lord our God”. (Ps 123:2). We can depend on the substance of his word and the strength of his faith.
I’ll never match Paul for his style and substance, but I wonder if those whom I love feel they can depend on my faith to support them in theirs. Are they assured of my love for them as Timothy was of Paul’s? Something to think about.
