Final Charge - 2 Timothy 4

Paul has addressed important subjects across these two letters, but we can also see that they are practical letters to Timothy written in specific circumstances. The letter finishes with various practical points: people are ill or in different locations, come before winter, bring cloak and scrolls! It is in this real and actual context that Paul and Timothy were attempting to speak out for Jesus.

[OUT] Where are you called to speak for Jesus?

Challenge: Explain what you do is because of your faith in Jesus
