2 Timothy is Paul's last letter. It was written as encouragement to Timothy, challenging him to fully accept his calling despite the suffering and hardship that come with this life. The letter also reminds Timothy to maintain faith and hope in Jesus' resurrection and raise faithful leaders who will teach the good news about Jesus.
Paul tells Timothy that through following Jesus, believers will experience challenges, suffering, risk, tension, discomforts, and struggles. In those dark and difficult moments, Jesus' presence, love, and faithfulness can become tangible and real.
