A Good Soldier of Christ Jesus

2Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus.G4771G3767G3450G5043G1743G1722G5485G1722G5547G2424 2You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.G2532G3739G191G3844G1700G1223G4183G3144G5023G3908G4103G444G3748G2071G2425G1321G2087G2532 3Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.G4771G3767G2553G5613G2570G4757G2424G5547 4Soldiers don't get tied up in the affairs of civilian life, for then they cannot please the officer who enlisted them.G3762G4754G1707G4230G979G2443G700G4758 5And athletes cannot win the prize unless they follow the rules.G1161G1437G5100G2532G118G4737G3756G4737G3362G118G3545 6And hardworking farmers should be the first to enjoy the fruit of their labor.G1092G2872G1163G4413G3335G2590 7Think about what I am saying. The Lord will help you understand all these things.G3539G3739G3004G1063G2962G1325G4671G4907G1722G3956 8Always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News I preach.G3421G2424G5547G1537G4690G1138G1453G1537G3498G2596G3450G2098 9And because I preach this Good News, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. But the word of God cannot be chained.G1722G3739G2553G5613G2557G3360G1199G235G3056G2316G1210G3756G1210 10So I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chosen.G1223G5124G5278G3956G1588G1588G1223G2443G846G5177G2532G5177G4991G3588G1722G5547G2424G3326G166G1391 11This is a trustworthy saying: If we die with him, we will also live with him.G4103G3056G1063G1487G4880G4800G2532G4800 12If we endure hardship, we will reign with him. If we deny him, he will deny us.G1487G5278G4821G2532G4821G1487G720G2548G720G2248 13If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.G1487G569G1565G3306G4103G3756G1410G720G1438 14Remind everyone about these things, and command them in God's presence to stop fighting over words. Such arguments are useless, and they can ruin those who hear them.G5023G5279G1263G1799G2962G3054G3361G3054G1519G3762G5539G1909G2692G191

An Approved Worker

15Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.G4704G3936G4572G1384G2316G2040G422G3718G3056G225 16Avoid worthless, foolish talk that only leads to more godless behavior.G1161G4026G952G2757G1063G4298G1909G4119G763 17This kind of talk spreads like cancer, as in the case of Hymenaeus and Philetus.G2532G846G3056G2192G3542G5613G1044G3739G2076G5211G2532G5372 18They have left the path of truth, claiming that the resurrection of the dead has already occurred; in this way, they have turned some people away from the faith.G3748G4012G225G795G3004G386G1096G2235G2532G396G4102G5100 19But God's truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: "The LORD knows those who are his," and "All who belong to the LORD must turn away from evil."G3305G2310G2316G2476G4731G2192G5026G4973G2962G1097G5607G846G2532G868G3956G3687G3686G5547G868G575G93 20In a wealthy home some utensils are made of gold and silver, and some are made of wood and clay. The expensive utensils are used for special occasions, and the cheap ones are for everyday use.G1161G1722G3173G3614G2076G3756G3440G4632G5552G2532G693G235G2532G3585G2532G3749G2532G3739G3303G1519G5092G1161G3739G1519G819 21If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.G1437G5100G3767G1571G1438G575G5130G2071G4632G1519G5092G37G2532G2173G1203G2090G1519G3956G18G2041 22Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.G5343G1161G3512G1939G1161G1377G1343G4102G26G1515G3326G1941G2962G1537G2513G2588 23Again I say, don't get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights.G1161G3474G2532G521G2214G3868G1492G3754G1080G3163 24A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people.G1161G1401G2962G1163G3756G3164G235G1511G2261G4314G3956G1317G420 25Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people's hearts, and they will learn the truth.G1722G4236G3811G475G3379G2316G3379G1325G846G3341G1519G1922G225 26Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil's trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.G2532G366G1537G3803G1228G2221G5259G846G1519G1565G2307
