2 Timothy 4:6-8 – LOOKING BACK
We all have the ability to look back, reflect, and evaluate what has happened in our lives, and what we have accomplished. Many a Godly man can look back and see the blessings and hand of God in their lives. (Chose a couple of men or women your congregation would know, and share how that man or lady can look back and see how God has worked through them.)
I think most of us want to be able to look back at the end of life and be able to say that we have accomplished something for the Lord. Paul was able to say this at the end of his life. Our text gives us some lessons so that at the end of our lives we will be able to say something similar to what Paul said.
“I AM” speaks of Paul’s CHARACTER in Vs. 6..
“I HAVE” speaks of Paul’s CONDUCT in Vs. 7.
“THERE IS” speaks of Paul’s CONCLUSION in Vs. 8.
