Paul in this passage challenges Timothy to continue fighting the good fight, to oppose false teaching in the church and to stick with the truth over and above everything else. He encourages Timothy to keep reading the scriptures, to proclaim the message of salvation, to endure despite constant persecution and opposition. We need to have this same endurance in our lives and to keep living God's way until the end. We need to proclaim the gospel to others so that we may shape peoples lives and encourage one another. We need also to examine our own lives and hearts and through God's word and the Holy Spirit, be transformed and changed to live Godly lives. We need to keep fighting the good fight.
