Do not be ashamed of your gospel calling because God has radically saved you by His glorious grace and He will continue to propel you by His glorious grace.
Your MPS should actually reflect your largest arc - thus your Alternative here. This sounds like a Ground arc.
Brent Karding
in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
Good Ac-Mn relationships here in 13a-b and 14a-b.
Brent Karding
ollow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me,
Series would actually be better here, since these aren't three Alternatives that Timothy can choose from. Rather, he is supposed to obey all three commands.

Good job, btw, with the three largest arcs here (8a-12e, 13a-b, 14a-b).
Brent Karding
who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,
Same thing with 10a and b - no Progressions here, since each relative pronoun is describing - and thus modifying - a previous proposition.
Brent Karding
which he gave us in Christ Jesus
Since "which" is describing "purpose and grace" in 9c, 9d-10b should be an Explanation, and 9d the Idea.
Brent Karding
but because of his own purpose and grace,
9b-c should be connected as a Neg-Pos: "not this, but that." So there's no Sit-R here, actually.
Brent Karding
who saved us and called us to a holy calling,
Since 9a-10b are describing "God" in 8d, 8d should be the Idea, rather than all of 8a-d, and 9a-10b the Explanation. In other words, the Id-Exp would be inside the Manner of 8b.
