Inspired Endurance

In 2 Timothy 2 Paul encouraged young Timothy to be strong in grace and to endure hardships like a faithful soldier of Christ. Furthermore, in V 11, he explained that we endure worldly hardship for the sake of the elect and he recited a ‘faithful saying’ we should all commit to memory; “If we die with Him, we shall also live with Him! If we endure with Him, we shall also reign with Him! If we deny Him, He also will deny us! And here’s the kicker; if we are faithless, He remains faithful as He can not deny Himself!” Endure in the Greek is made up of two words hupo and menó ( hoop-om-en’-o). Translating it from right to left it means to remain under authority. Wow, that tells me every hardship we endure is subordinate to God’s authority. Therefore, we shouldn’t run from hardships rather, we should bravely and calmly persevere through misfortunes and trials because of we endure to the end, we will be delivered (Matt 10:12,Mark 13:13). THANK YOU JESUS!!!
