Last week, we considered Paul’s exhortation to Timothy—and to us. Hold fast! Hold fast to faith, to love, to Jesus. Hold fast to what you know about God—especially in uncertain times. You’ll need to hold fast to endure this hardship—and the hardships that are coming.
As we begin 2 Timothy 2, Paul points to three different metaphors to encourage us as we hold fast and endure hardship: a good soldier of Jesus Christ, an athlete, and a hardworking farmer. Through these metaphors, Paul paints the picture of what it looks like to be “strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”
But what does it mean to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus? Watch the replay of our live stream from Sunday as we began our study of 2 Timothy chapter 2.
Read ahead for this Sunday! Read through, think through, and pray through 2 Timothy 2 in preparation for our live stream this coming Sunday at 10am (CDT) on our YouTube channel. If you'd like to participate in the chat feature, you'll need to view the live stream in YouTube and be logged in to your YouTube account so we can see who you are.
