Bible: 2 Tim 2:1-4
Serving Faithfully Despite Hardship
2:1 So you, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2:2 And entrust what you heard me say 1 in the presence of many others as witnesses 2 to faithful people 3 who will be competent 4 to teach others as well. 2:3 Take your share of suffering 5 as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 2:4 No one in military service gets entangled in matters of everyday life; otherwise he will not please 6 the one who recruited him.
