An important principle for enjoying an abundant life is perseverance. The problem with many is they give up one yard short of the goal line. If you have ever felt like you just can’t go another step, our series of studies during December 2014 can help you dig a little deeper and and keep you going. We’ll examine Second Timothy 2, where Paul provides extensive resources for Timothy to endure difficulties and stay on task. He calls attention in verse 1 to the first item that helps disciples be more durable: “You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (NKJV). God’s grace can sustain us through extreme hardships.
