Book 55 2 Timothy 001:001 Paul, an Apostle of Christ Jesus, by the will of God, for proclaiming the promise of the Life which is in Christ Jesus: 001:002 To Timothy my dearly loved child. May grace, mercy and peace be granted to you from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 001:003 I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience as my forefathers did that night and day I unceasingly remember you in my prayers, 001:004 being always mindful of your tears, and longing to see you that I may be filled with joy. 001:005 For I recall the sincere faith which is in your heart a faith which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and then in your mother Eunice, and, I am fully convinced, now dwells in you also. 001:006 For this reason let me remind you to rekindle God's gift which is yours through the laying on of my hands. 001:007 For the Spirit which God has given us is not a spirit of cowardice, but one of power and of love and of sound judgement. 001:008 Do not be ashamed then to bear witness for our Lord and for me His prisoner; but rather share suffering with me in the service of the Good News, strengthened by the power of God. 001:009 For He saved us and called us with a holy call, not in accordance with our desserts, but in accordance with His own purpose and the free grace which He bestowed on us in Christ Jesus before the commencement of the Ages, 001:010 but which has now been plainly revealed through the Appearing of our Saviour, Christ Jesus. He has put an end to death and has brought Life and Immortality to light through the Good News, 001:011 of which I have been appointed a preacher, Apostle and teacher, to the Gentiles. 001:012 That indeed is the reason why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know in whom my trust reposes, and I am confident that He has it in His power to keep what I have entrusted to Him safe until that day. 001:013 Provide yourself with an outline of the sound teaching which you have heard from my lips, and be true to the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 001:014 That precious treasure which is in your charge, guard through the Holy Spirit who has His home in our hearts. 001:015 Of this you are aware, that all the Christians in Roman Asia have deserted me: and among them Phygelus and Hermogenes. 001:016 May the Lord show mercy to the household of Onesiphorus; for many a time he cheered me and he was not ashamed of my chain. 001:017 Nay, when he was here in Rome, he took great pains to inquire where I was living, and at last he found me. 001:018 (The Lord grant that he may obtain mercy at His hands on that day!) And you yourself well know all the services which he rendered me in Ephesus. 002:001 You then, my child, must be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 002:002 All that you have been taught by me in the hearing of many witnesses, you must hand on to trusty men who shall themselves, in turn, be competent to instruct others also. 002:003 As a good soldier of Christ Jesus accept your share of suffering. 002:004 Every one who serves as a soldier keeps himself from becoming entangled in the world's business so that he may satisfy the officer who enlisted him. 002:005 And if any one takes part in an athletic contest, he gets no prize unless he obeys the rules. 002:006 The harvestman who labours in the field must be the first to get a share of the crop. 002:007 Mark well what I am saying: the Lord will give you discernment in everything. 002:008 Never forget that Jesus Christ has risen from among the dead and is a descendant of David, as is declared in the Good News which I preach. 002:009 For preaching the Good News I suffer, and am even put in chains, as if I were a criminal: yet the word of God is not imprisoned...
