Following Paul (chapter 3)

Paul told Timothy that he had seen Paul’s lifestyle.  He had seen his teachings, his faith, his patience, his love and his steadfastness.  However, he also seen his persecutions and sufferings, but the Lord always rescued Paul.  In fact, all who follow Christ will be persecuted.  The wicked people seem to be getting worse.  Timothy, on the other hand, should continue on with what he has learned and believed.  Do try to continue in a good holy lifestyle?
