Paul exhorted his protege Timothy to trust in the Lord enough to boldly and confidently proclaim the Gospel. As Christians, we must also not be ashamed to stand firmly on the truth.
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR SHEPHERD GROUPS
- How would you define "trust"?
- What kind of fears prevent you from sharing your faith with others or living a Christ-centered life?
- Do you have any "Pauls" in your life to encourage your Christian walk? Do you have any "Timothys"?
- Read and discuss 2 Timothy 4, which represents the last words of Paul recorded in Scripture. How do you think Paul's "unashamed" ministry affected his legacy to Timothy, and to believers through the ages? What kind of legacy do you hope to leave?
