The Christian’s Great Assurance and Hope (2 Timothy 4:6-8)
These words are the climax of this letter and there is no greater expression of victory when death is imminent in all the Bible. Paul looks back at what the grace of God has done for him, and he also looks ahead. He is soon to die, his life on earth is all behind him, but he is looking ahead. He has a future, a glorious future,and he wants every Christian to be aware of this blessed hope.
