Share in Suffering
(2 Timothy 1:12)
In this part of Paul’s final epistle to the young preacher, Timothy, he explains why he has suffered and calls his fellow worker in the faith to be willing to share in suffering if the Lord sees fit for him to do so. The life of Paul was filled with suffering and we must ask: What sustained him? And what will sustain us if we also face trying days for the cause of Christ?
