Paul suffered persecution.
He encourages Timothy to press on in the midst of persecution.
Paul set the example.
What did he do?
2 Timothy 2:10
For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory.
Paul endured all things…
- for the sake of the gospel.
- for the sake of those who are chosen.
It was Paul’s desire that those who are chosen would obtain salvation which is in Christ Jesus and the eternal glory that goes with it.
So should we.
We are called to endure all things…
Not necessarily for ourselves…
For the Kingdom.
For those who are chosen.
Think on that…
Do we do all things for the sake of those who are chosen?
