When situations arise where we must take a stand and pay a price for our commitment to Jesus Christ, Paul’s example, as an “outpoured drink offering” is very helpful. Let’s proceed and fight the good fight, finish the race and keep the faith!
2 Timothy 4:6-8 (NIV)
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.
