Main Point: “Blessing comes through pain, fruit through toil, life through death, glory through suffering…we must not expect the Christian life to be easy." (Stott, lectures on the Pastoral Epistles) Word Study - kopiaw BDAG: To become weary/tired To exert oneself physically, mentally, or spiritually; i.e. "work hard", "toil", "strive", "struggle" Pauline uses: Rom. 16:6 - "Greet Mary, who worked very hard for you" Rom. 16:12 - "Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, those women who work hard in the Lord" 1 Cor. 4:12 - "We work hard with our own hands" (speaking of the apostles) 1 Cor. 15:10 - "But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them - yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me" 1 Cor. 16:16 Gal. 4:11 - "I fear for you, that somehow I have wasted my efforts on you" Eph. 4:28 - "He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need" Phil. 2:16 - "as you hold out the word of life - in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing." Col. 1:29 - "To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me" 1 Thess. 5:12 - "Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you." 1 Tim 4:8-10 - For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 9 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance 10 (and for this we labor and strive), that we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, and especially of those who believe. 1 Tim. 5:17 - "The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching"

You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus,
καὶ ἃ ἤκουσας παρ’ ἐμοῦ διὰ πολλῶν μαρτύρων, ταῦτα παράθου πιστοῖς ἀνθρώποις, οἵτινες ἱκανοὶ ἔσονται καὶ ἑτέρους διδάξαι.

Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
οὐδεὶς στρατευόμενος ἐμπλέκεται ταῖς τοῦ βίου πραγματείαις, ἵνα τῷ στρατολογήσαντι ἀρέσῃ·
No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.
ἐὰν δὲ καὶ ἀθλῇ τις, οὐ στεφανοῦται ἐὰν μὴ νομίμως ἀθλήσῃ.
An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.
τὸν κοπιῶντα γεωργὸν δεῖ πρῶτον τῶν καρπῶν μεταλαμβάνειν.
It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops.
νόει ὃ λέγω·
Think over what I say,
δώσει γάρ σοι ὁ κύριος σύνεσιν ἐν πᾶσιν.
