2 Timothy 4:6-8

For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. 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.

One response to “2 Timothy 4:6-8

  1. Paul is at rest with the fact that the end of his life is near and that he will finish his life confined and abused. He points to the source of his strength in the end of this passage. He longs for the return and the kingdom of Christ. Because he is committed to, and sold out to, the kingdom of God, the temporal issues that he has in this life can be overlooked for eternity.
