Central idea : The purpose for doing Christ's work is that our life may be a drink offering poured out before the King who joyfully crowns us in His presence. Summary: Paul begins the passage by giving Timothy four charges: be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill your ministry. This is followed by the second main piece of the passage: the purpose. Paul shows Timothy how he has already done this, and then explains why in v. 6: "for I am already being poured out as a drink offering". He saw his entire life as an offering poured out at the base of God's altar. After a further explanation of how his life had been a drink offering, Paul ends the passage by explaining what both he and Timothy have to look forward to: the crown of righteousness. If our lives are a drink offering to the Lord, then we get to await with joy the reward from the King of Heaven. Notes: v. 6: "Already poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come". The drink offering was par of daily sacrifices the priests offered at the temple (Exodus 29:40-41, Lev 23:13, Num 28:7). Phillippians 2:14-18 offers more insight into what Paul means here: "Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Liv clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ's return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless. But I will rejoice even if I lose my life, pouring it out like a liquid offering to God, just like your faithful service is an offering to God . And I want all of you to share that joy. Yes, you should rejoice, and I will share in your joy". This note in the NLT Study Bible offers explanation of this verse: "Both Jews and pagans often poured out a libation of wine either on a sacrifice or at the base of the alter in honor of the deity. Paul's entire life was an offering to God." Romans 12:1, 15:16.
