Paul’s second letter to Timothy ends with a tender, straightforward call for the young pastor to stand firm in his faith. The sins and opposition which confronted the first-century church—including outwardly religious people who did not know the power of God—remain familiar to us today. When our focus is on God’s faithfulness, though, we can endure the falsehoods that come against us. Alistair Begg delivers a loving challenge to believers to withstand worldly pressure and minister the Gospel faithfully.
1But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.
