Sharing in the Suffering
Paul wrote his second letter to Timothy during a season of suffering. Paul knew his death was coming soon. He asks Timothy to share in his suffering. Paul was no stranger to suffering and he wanted to make sure Timothy understood what might be coming.
In our conversation, Pastor Jim shares thoughts on suffering and why we should not allow suffering to lead us into shame. We take a closer look at the suffering Paul faced, including disappointments in ministry, and how Paul could sustain hope in the midst of it.
