Paul Commends Timothy (Day 9)

Read Philippians 2:19-24
   Timothy was with Paul in Rome when Paul wrote this letter. He traveled with Paul on his second missionary journey when the church at Philippi was begun.
   Paul observed that most believers are too preoccupied with their own needs to spend time working for Christ. Don’t let your schedule and concerns crowd your love and Christian service to others. 
   Just as a skilled workman trains an apprentice, Paul was preparing Timothy to carry on the ministry in his absence. Whom are you apprenticing for God’s work? 
   Paul was in prison for preaching about Christ. He was telling the Philippians that when he learned of the court’s decision, he would send Timothy to them with the news, and that he was ready to accept whatever came.
