Genuine Faith

1 Timothy 1:2 To Timothy, a true son in the faith

Timothy being at this point, mid to late teens.  Quit remarkable since he joined Paul on his second missionary journey at such a young age and is now pastor of the church in Ephesus.  Paul stated that there is nobody like minded as Timothy was to him.  What a young man this was.  Often, teenagers are experimenting with life trying to find their identity.  Timothy found his identity in Christ early and often.  A true son meant a sincere or genuine son.  Not just a son, but a son in the Faith of Jesus Christ.  Timothy was the real deal.  I cant imagine what he faced being in one of the leading cities of idols worship but God chose him and thus Paul had confidence in him.  I desire to be a true son in the faith, a true father in the faith, a true husband in the faith, and a true Christian in the faith.  I believe the only thing keeping me from or keeping me in, is my reception and trusting in my LORD.  Jesus makes me real, true, sincere.  LORD, may my life be without wax.

Without wax. Nothing fake or added. Genuine throughout. Purified to the point that we reflect our Father. Not always an easy path, but the very best pathway until we see Him face to face.

Amen. Funny how His light exposes any and all darkness that may be in our lives. Its impossible for darkness to remain when the light shines. There must be a object in between the LORD and us for and shadows to remain. A faith without shadows and wax, LORD please give us that all of our days.
