  • 2 Timothy 2:8-15

    Remember Jesus Christ, who was raised from the dead and descended from David. This is my good news. This is the reason I’m suffering to the point that I’m in prison like a common criminal. But God’s word cannot be imprisoned. 10 This is why I endure everything for the sake of those who are chosen by God so that they too may experience salvation in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 11 This saying is reliable:

    “If we have died together, we will also live together.
    12         If we endure, we will also rule together.
            If we deny him, he will also deny us.
    13 If we are disloyal, he stays faithful”
        because he can’t be anything else than what he is.

    Speak, instruct, and act correctly

    14 Remind them of these things and warn them in the sight of God not to engage in battles over words that aren’t helpful and only destroy those who hear them. 15 Make an effort to present yourself to God as a tried-and-true worker, who doesn’t need to be ashamed but is one who interprets the message of truth correctly.
