Rest on Christ's Laurels (2 Timothy 4:6-8, 2 Timothy 4:16-18)

Pastor Aaron Ude, October 23, 2016
Part of the Sunday Sermons series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

You have all probably heard the saying “resting on his laurels”. It refers to someone who accomplished something great like winning a gold metal at the Olympics and then is content to lay back and not try hard anymore. They just enjoy the fame and money they already have and don’t try to add to it. For example, despite being the most decorated olympian ever, Michael Phelps was not content to rest on his laurels. He trained and strived and competed and came back to compete in Rio and win some more medals. The apostle Paul was however content to rest on his laurels and he encourages Timothy and us to follow the same course. Why? Because it wasn’t his accomplishments Paul was resting on. What was Paul resting on? The laurels of the righteous.
