    A Call to Gospel Endurance
    Our guest speaker this week is Pastor Darryl Dash from Liberty Grace Church in Toronto. His message is from 2 Timothy 2:1-13 "A Call to Gospel Endurance."

    Questions
    1. The apostle Paul challenges Timothy in vv.1-2. What is the scope of Paul’s challenge? How can Timothy possibly do all that? Where should his strength come from? How can we take up Paul’s challenge?

    2. In v.3 Paul encourages Timothy to, “share in suffering as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” How could Timothy have done that in a practical way? How can we do the same?

    3. In v.4-7 Paul uses the common images of a soldier, athlete and farmer, and tells Timothy to think about what he has said. As you reflect upon Paul’s words, what understanding has the Lord given you regarding these images? How can we apply this knowledge today?

    4. Read v.8-13 again. What core belief is Paul reminding Timothy of? Why would this be so important to Timothy then, and us today? (see 1 Timothy 3-7)

    5. In v.9 Paul contrasts his situation in prison with the freedom of the Gospel. Proclaiming Jesus Christ as the Messiah and preaching the Gospel that frees us, landed him in prison. What does this tell you about the power of the Gospel?

    6. What is it that motivates Paul to endure the hardships he faces? (v.10) Compare and contrast your life and experience. Are you taking the Gospel to your world? Are you being mentored/discipled? Are you mentoring/discipling someone?

    7. Why was it important for Paul to write this passage (v.1-13) to Timothy? What effect would it have on Timothy? What effect does it have on you?
