Sharing in Suffering for the Gospel

Sunday, October 6th 2019

Our Second Lesson this morning is a lesson from the Apostle Paul's second letter to Timothy. Paul is writing from a Roman prison. He seems to know that death awaits him this time. And tradition holds that he was executed by beheading under the Emperor Nero. And whereas Paul gives some indication of his own concern of facing death, Paul shows more concern for his young protege and for the church's he has started. He does not want his own persecution or suffering to dishearten others. And he knows the danger of falling away from the faith, and that of being deceived by the increasing number of false teachers moving about. And so he offers encouragement to others in how they might fight the good fight of the faith.
