In 2 Timothy 4:5, it says, "But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry."
In this scripture, the Apostle Paul is giving charge of the gospel to Timothy. And what wonderful words for all of us who are on mission for Christ!
Keeping Our Minds on the Gospel
Who among us doesn’t need reminded to keep our head in all situations? Quite simply this means we’re to stay focused, remain vigilant, and gaze straight ahead at the mission we’re doing for the Lord. Resisting the distractions of life helps us to stay faithful to Christ.
Keep Pressing On
Enduring hardship is part of every act of ministry we will set ourselves to do. We should expect roadblocks, warfare, problems, shortage of funds, weather cancelations, etc. If we’re doing anything of value to the Kingdom of God, we shouldn’t expect the enemy to be silent.
