Keep the Faith
2 Timothy 4:1-8(NASB)
“Preach the Word”
4 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is tojudge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2 preachthe word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with[a]great patience and instruction. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 andwill turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. 5 But you,be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill yourministry.
6 For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; 8 in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.
