There is genuine benefit of learning from the Apostle Paul’s example:
to regard our times of suffering and sacrifice as an offering to God, being committed to righteousness, persevering to the end and allowing no compromise to His Will. We can live in joyful anticipation of His warm welcome in Heaven.
2 Timothy 4:6-8
6 For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
