the mission is worth it

2 Timothy 2:8-13 (JDV)

2 Timothy 2:8 Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead and descended from David, according to my excellent message,
2 Timothy 2:9 for which I suffer to the point of being bound like a criminal. But the word of God is not bound.
2 Timothy 2:10 This is why I endure all things for the elect: so that they also may obtain rescue (σωτηρία), which is in Christ Jesus, with permanent glory.
2 Timothy 2:11 This saying is trustworthy: You see, if we died with him, we will also live with him;
2 Timothy 2:12 if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he will also deny us;
2 Timothy 2:13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful, because he cannot deny himself.

the mission is worth it

Are you wondering if it is all worth it. There is so much evil in this world, and so much pain, and so many mistakes. Why keep fighting to rescue others by proclaiming the gospel.

Paul’s answer is that it is worth it. God is in this, and he has chosen some who will be saved.

Jesus Christ has demonstrated that it is worth it by his resurrection and ascension.

If we endure, we will live with him.

If we endure, we will reign with him.

If we endure, our temporary shame will be replaced with permanent glory.

LORD, thank you for the call to share your excellent message, because the mission is worth the effort.
