2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering….
In your preaching always encourage your hears to be longsuffering, enduring, patience and hold fast to Christ and His teaching.
As Soldiers for Christ we should expect hardship and be trained to face it. As comrades locking arms in the service of our Commander, Christ’s humble warriors, we are to live out our lives, on enemy-occupied territory.
We’re called to a life of endurance empowered by Christ, and accompanied by joyful thanksgiving. Endurance requires patience and a deep commitment to remain faithful to our calling.
