2 Timothy is Paul's last letter. It encourages Timothy to accept his calling and commit to its challenges, suffering and struggles as he deals with corrupt teachings.
The letter also reminds Timothy to maintain faith and hope in Jesus' resurrection and to raise faithful leaders who will teach the good news about Jesus. They must focus on the Scriptures' unified story line that leads to salvation in Jesus and helps believers achieve their purpose of spreading the good news.
While 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, which imprisoned and abandoned Paul and generations of Christians after him, know firsthand.
