How to Stay in Your Calling and Not Come Out by Roberts Liardon
In this unique paraphrase of the Epistles of Paul to Timothy, Pastor Roberts Liardon reveals how Paul put Timothy back on the cutting edge of ministry. Timothy was facing the pressure of pastoring a large church during a time of severe persecution. He was most likely on the top of the enemy’s hit list of most wanted men. Timothy was also facing the pressure of finding homes for the orphans whose parents were martyred in the theaters of Rome.
In addition, he had to make sure he was preaching messages of the right thing so that everybody was being right and the atmosphere of his church stayed right. God moved on the apostle Paul to pray for Timothy and write him letters during this trial of great persecution and pressure. As a result, Timothy remained on the front lines of Christian ministry and fulfilled his high call in Christ Jesus.
