Climbing the Mountain

Carey Higgins

Missionary in Residence

Pastor Carey Higgins shares how we can climb the mountain of discipleship by practicing disciplines of the soldier, athlete & farmer.

CLIMBING THE MOUNTAIN

2 Timothy 2:3-7 – Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.

I. Surrender (verse 4)

Submission to their authority

Prepare for battle

The priority of partnerships

II. Strength (verse 5)

Devoted to training

Ready to compete

Focus on the prize

III. Sacrifice (verse 6)

No harvest without sowing

No Guarantees of a harvest

There is great joy in the harvest

2 Timothy
