2 Timothy 2-4
2 Timothy is believed to be written near the end of Paul’s life. His zeal to finish his race well challenges me to persevere to do the same for the glory of God.
The faithful saying Paul refers to in verse 11 is not in our Bible, but may have been a familiar hymn of the day. It has been incorporated into modern hymns including Jerry Dan Deutschendorf’s 2014 “If We Died With Him.”
Paul challenges us to be people of God by studying the Bible and not being discouraged by the culture that denies the truth of God’s Word. Exodus 20:11 says “God spoke all these words.” We should be honored to have them in our hands and to follow them.
