2 Timothy 1:8–18

What it takes to be faithful

Keys to being faithful in an unfaithful world.

A plea to remain faithful for the sake for the Gospel


Do not be ashamed- v. 8a

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner,



Expect suffering – 8b

but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,



Remember your salvation/Your calling – vv. 9-10

[9] who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, [10] and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel





Embrace your ministry/responsibility – vv. 11-12a

[11] for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, [12] which is why I suffer as I do.

Preacher – proclaimer/herald. Public exhortation. Not his words.. BUT HIS WORDS

Apostle – authority. Today the Bible is our authority.

Teacher – conveying is such a way that knowledge is gained.  Instruct with a purpose…to develop and encourage learning.


Proclaiming with authority the words that can bring about change.
