Book 55 2 Timothy 001:001 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, according to the promise of the life which is in Christ Jesus, 001:002 to Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 001:003 I thank God, whom I serve as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. How unceasing is my memory of you in my petitions, night and day 001:004 longing to see you, remembering your tears, that I may be filled with joy; 001:005 having been reminded of the unfeigned faith that is in you; which lived first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, in you also. 001:006 For this cause, I remind you that you should stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 001:007 For God didn't give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self control. 001:008 Therefore don't be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner; but endure hardship for the Good News according to the power of God, 001:009 who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before times eternal, 001:010 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the Good News. 001:011 For this, I was appointed as a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. 001:012 For this cause I also suffer these things. Yet I am not ashamed, for I know him whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him against that day. 001:013 Hold the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 001:014 That good thing which was committed to you, guard through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. 001:015 This you know, that all who are in Asia turned away from me; of whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 001:016 May the Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain, 001:017 but when he was in Rome, he sought me diligently, and found me 001:018 (the Lord grant to him to find the Lord's mercy in that day); and in how many things he served at Ephesus, you know very well. 002:001 You therefore, my child, be strengthened in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 002:002 The things which you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also. 002:003 You therefore must endure hardship, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 002:004 No soldier on duty entangles himself in the affairs of life, that he may please him who enrolled him as a soldier. 002:005 Also, if anyone competes in athletics, he isn't crowned unless he has competed by the rules. 002:006 The farmers who labor must be the first to get a share of the crops. 002:007 Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things. 002:008 Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my Good News, 002:009 in which I suffer hardship to the point of chains as a criminal. But God's word isn't chained. 002:010 Therefore I endure all things for the chosen ones' sake, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 002:011 This saying is faithful: "For if we died with him, we will also live with him. 002:012 If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he also will deny us. 002:013 If we are faithless, he remains faithful... Continue reading book >>
