The scripture for today, April 8, is 2nd Timothy 4:8 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
The Apostle Paul was about in his seventies at this writing. He’d been converted probably in his thirties. He’d spent the past forty years telling people how to escape hell, tolerating persecution, sometimes hunger, seldom staying in a city longer than a year, always on the go, never satisfied with the number of people he had reached with the News. Now he was in prison.
“For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
Oh, that we all could say this at the end of our life.
