Born to be Courageous

One of the readings in Mass today was a letter from St. Paul to Timothy. Paul was in and out of jail as he preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was reminding his student Timothy that “God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control.” Our pastor reminded us that we, too, have been given courage and that we are to stand firm on the teaching of Jesus Christ. We were not born into this world to just get through it and die, but we were born for God. Our mission in life is to get to Heaven and help others do so as well. This requires more than a mediocre sliding into church for an hour on Sunday. We – everyone – is made for more. It takes courage, love, and self-control to live a vibrant, meaningful life and return to God. But He will provide us with what we need when we make that choice.

I Found God today reminded of the life we are meant to live.
