2 Timothy 2:1
You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.…
We are His "servants." A master does more than engage a servant: he also gives him the means whereby he may work. The tradesman does not put his servants into a shop wherein there are no goods to sell; the farmer does not send his servants into the field without plough, harrow, or spade; the surgeon does not withhold drugs; nor the lawyer parchment and pens from his servant. It is even so with our great Master. He calls us to work, and, if we ask Him, He will qualify us for it.
(T. R. Stevenson.)
