St. Paul, filled with the power of the Holy Spirit was proclaiming the good news according to his capacity. During his mission he came across a good and committed Christian named Timothy. Paul wanted Timothy to accompany him and help him in his mission work. For Timothy it was a great privilege to work along with such a great personality. Together as a team they proclaimed the Risen Christ and we hear that the churches were strengthened in the faith and increased in numbers daily.
I too personally feel that to strengthen the faith of the people and help the church to grow, first of all we need the grace of the Risen Lord and then we ourselves should have that faith and God experience. Along with this when we work as a team I strongly believe that miracles do happen. The little actions that we do with love and concern can produce more fruits in our lives and in others' lives. Let us try to grow more in our faith and pray for the growth of the Church.
