The just ended 131st International Labor Day highlighted the need to separate within the amalgam, the composite portrait of the ideal qualities of a faithful Christian worker in the light of our Father’s words Jesus Christ as revealed to 2 Timothy 2 :1 “…my child, be strengthened in the grace that is in Christ Jesus”.
Looking at the whole chapter two (2) of the second book of Timothy, the Servant of Christ is to be:
- utterly dedicated to his work;
- accurate and clear in his teaching;
- upright in his character and conduct;
- courteous and gentle in his manner.
These are the responsibilities of those who labor and suffer for the sake of the gospel.
