2 Timothy 4:6-8- “As for me, my life has already been poured out as an offering to God. The time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me- the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.”
