Good Soldier

today's reading.
2 Timothy 1:15-2:13    You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes...
2 Timothy 1:15-18

2 Timothy 1:15-18think about it.
What does Paul say about Onesimus (1:16-18)? What can you do to refresh those who serve the Lord? What does Paul urge Timothy to do with the message he's been given (2:1-7)? What about handling distractions? Despite his suffering, what is Paul's main focus (2:8-13)? How would you describe your main focus in life?

the blog.
Paul uses a common example in 2 Timothy 2:3-4 to explain how we should be operating and navigating our life as a follower of Christ. He charges Timothy with being a good soldier for Christ, with the reminder that a soldier's goal is to please the one who enlisted him. So true.

So what does being a soldier for Christ mean to you? What can we do to make sure we keep our focus on pleasing Him? Tami W.
