These words of Paul to the young Pastor Timothy remind me of just how radical Paul was about his faith, the Gospel and serving Jesus.
“For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. 2Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2Timothy 4:8 Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:6–8 NKJV)
There are four things in this passage that stand out to me as the true marks of a radical, sold-out Christian.
