“Thou therefore endure harness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2Timothy 2:3).Text — 2 Timothy 2: 1-7
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) reports claim as at March 23, 2022, that within one month of Russian invasion of Ukraine, close to 7,000-15,000 soldiers had either been killed or wounded. This aptly paints the picture of the commitment of soldiers who fought to defend their territories or conquer others. That was why the Russian and Ukrainian soldiers fought till they breathed their last on the battle field.
Apostle Paul likens Christian workers to soldiers. They are to labour selflessly like soldiers, not entangling themselves with the affairs of this world. They are to demonstrate the same high level of commitment to gain those territories that have not been reached for Christ. Hence Reinhard Bonnke declared, “I cry to God day and night for greater effectiveness in winning our generation for Him.” Our fruit of evangelism is very important. Christian youths can bear much fruit by taking the gospel to their unsaved peers at school and all young people around them. Can you labour for Christ till your last breath?
Labour for Christ
Labour for Christ till your last breath.
