2 Timothy 2:3

You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
2 Timothy 2:3

Some verses in the Bible are more pleasant than others. I love Matthew 11 telling me Jesus comes to give me rest, for instance. The above verse is not one of those fun-to-read parts of Scripture. Paul told Timothy, you're going to endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus. That's a very common thing for soldiers of countries and it's the same for soldiers of Jesus.

When we are out there battling for the Lord, we are fighting the devil, our flesh, and the world, and they never stop. The devil is like a lion on the prowl, always after us and looking for our weaknesses. Our flesh only wants pleasure and the world wants to pull us away from God.

We are warned there are hardships ahead, but isn't the ultimate prize, eternity spent with Jesus, well worth it?

The battle belongs to the Lord,

Pastor Ron Kitchell
