What Do You Have?
2 Timothy 4:7
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
Max: I sit a few feet from a man on death row. Jewish by birth. Tentmaker by trade. Apostle by calling. His days are marked. Do you have family, Paul?
Paul: I have none.
Max: What about your health?
Paul: My body is beaten and tired.
Max: Do you have friends?
Paul: I do, but some have turned back.
Max: What do you have, Paul? No belongings. No family. Criticized by some. Mocked by others. What do you have, Paul?
I sit back quietly and watch. Paul rolls his hand into a fist. He looks at it. I look at it. What is he holding? What does he have?
Paul: I have my faith. It’s all I have. But it’s all I need. I have kept the faith.
(Paul leans back against the wall of his cell and smiles).
Max: Faith is trusting what the eye can’t see!
