2 Timothy 2:3 “Take with me your share of hardship [passing through the difficulties which you are called to endure], like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.”
We must be absolutely committed and disciplined in our relationship with the Lord - especially as we face trials. Like the soldier, we serve at the pleasure of our Commander, and we must be focused on Him and obedient to His orders - despite the hardships and obstacles. Like an athlete, we press through the pain and abide by the rules to reach our goal, which is glorifying Him. And like a farmer, we patiently wait as our seeds of consistent faithfulness bloom into a harvest of righteousness.
