In today’s episode we’ll be in chapter two, verses 1-14. In this section of his letter, Paul will attempt to pass the mantle of leadership to Timothy, encouraging his young protégé to stand firm in his faith and to serve the cause of Christ like a good soldier. He continues to prepare Timothy for the difficult days ahead by recalling his own suffering and that of Christ. Jesus was the God-man, the Son of God who took on human flesh and suffered an agonizing death at the hands of men. All so that the sins of men might be atoned for and that some might enjoy a restored relationship with God the Father by placing their faith in His Son’s sacrificial death on the cross. Paul wanted Timothy to never forget the reality of the resurrection, because it is in that fact all our hope is based. Jesus died, only to rise again. And we too, will one day rise again to new life, sinless and free from the effects of death – forever.
