2 Timothy 4: 1-7 “In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 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.”

 

Women giving birth anticipate hearing their baby’s first cry.

Lovers long to hear those three little words: “I Love You.”

Christians look forward to seeing Jesus in Heaven and hearing Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

We have believed that Christ died for our sins and accepted His saving grace.

We have done our part in spreading the gospel.

We have used the talents God gifted us with for the good of our Christian community and local church.

We have helped those less fortunate than ourselves.

We have accomplished the purpose God had for us.

We have interceded for others in prayer.

We have encouraged others to persevere in the midst of adversity.

We have run the race…finished the course.

Someday we will rejoice with others as we hear Him say, “Well, done, good and faithful servant.”
