Timothy was a young Christian leader who spent 15 years learning from his mentor, the apostle Paul, how to follow Jesus Christ. After a lifetime of faithful evangelism, preaching, and church-planting, the great apostle was set to become a martyr. In his final letter, Paul instructed Timothy on what was most important to his spiritual journey and how to endure in his work. Paul had finished his race, and he faced the end of his life, he asked the question: would Timothy pick up the mantle of leadership from his mentor and endure to the end?
Oh how we need this encouragement today! In the midst of abundant external and internal opposition, we need a generation of young leaders who will persevere in the faith, willing to stand tall for Christ at great cost to themselves. Join us in July and August as we learn from 2 Timothy how to persevere in our faith and run the race set before us with joy and endurance.
