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

 

 

WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE

 

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.
