Finish Well: The Lord is with You

2 Timothy 4:1-22

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.  Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me, on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”

2 Timothy 4:7-8

 

You are able to finish well as a Christ follower…

  • when you choose to faithfully serve others in anticipation of the any moment return of Christ. 4:1-5

 

 

  • when you know God will reward your efforts. 4:6-8

 

 

  • when you are assisted by faithful partners. 4:9-13; 19-22

 

 

  • Warning:  There will always be enemies of the work of God.  4:14-15 and 4:3-4

 

 

  • when you choose to depend on the strength God provides.4:16-18

 

Application:  Do you have an eternal perspective about the future?  What are your priorities considering the imminent return of the Lord?  Who has God encouraged you to serve?
