10/25/19: 2 Timothy 4:1-22; Psalm 95:1-96:13; Proverbs 26:9-12
Scholars concur that this is the last chapter Paul wrote before his execution by Nero. Indeed, Coffman refers to chapter 4 as “the last will and testament of the great apostle to the Gentiles.” As such this is a very personal chapter and as you read I hope you could feel the emotion Paul expressed.
Lord willing, we will be able to echo these impassioned final words of Paul in our own lives & never forget the promise he recognizes:
2 Timothy 4: 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 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.
