We live in a self-centered world. It is a sure sign of our age. The apostle Paul warned Timothy a day would come (and was near) when the misbehavior in Ephesus would be widespread. Welcome to our world. Sadly, false teachers and egomaniacs exploit others with their antics. Paul offers another way, a way of faithfulness in life, love, and suffering. He knows Timothy's faith has followed a common growth path. He encourages him, and us, to continue the path of learning faithfulness. And when we learn it, we live IT.

After Jesus rose from the dead, he made a few appearances. One of the most famous was a roadside conversation with Cleopas and friend as they journeyed to Emmaus. At first, they did not recognize Jesus, recounting to him his own tragic death. Crucifixion and resurrection, of course, were part of God's grand plan, spelled out in Scripture. Jesus makes this known, then himself, before he leaves his traveling companions. Both the resurrection and Scriptures serve as a vital link to God yet today.
