Paul's closing admonition to Timothy serves as a close to the instruction of this book and to his ministry as a whole.  Paul acknowledges the reality of his current situation, looks back at God's grace throughout his ministry, and looks forward to his future reward and eternity with Jesus.  In keeping with the same broad scope, consider these questions for Tuesday.  Bear in mind there isn't a right answer to these questions.  They will be contextual to your life and the opportunities God has given you.

  1. How should you view your own death?  Does how you live your life demonstrate/betray this belief?
  2. What do you want to be able to say about your life and ministry when it comes to an end?  What would be in your list of "I have played the game, finished well, and stayed on target"?
  3. How does your life right now demonstrate or fail to demonstrate that you are one of those that "loves [Jesus'] appearing"?
