It was in from the Mamertine prison that Paul, as he faced martyrdom for Christ, penned these words:
For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.—2 Timothy 4:6–8
When I think about Paul spending his last days in this prison, I’m humbled and thankful. And I’m reminded of the importance of living faithfully and finishing well for the Lord.
