Main point summary
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.
2 Timothy 1:8-14
Therefore q do not be ashamed of r the testimony about our Lord,
nor of s me his prisoner,
but t share in suffering for the gospel
by the power of God,
u who saved us and v called us to 1 a holy calling,
w not because of our works
but because of v his own purpose and grace,
which he gave us in Christ Jesus
x before the ages began, 2
and which now has y been manifested through z the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus,
a who abolished death and b brought life and c immortality to light through the gospel,
d for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher,
e which is why I suffer as I do.
But f I am not ashamed,
for g I know whom I have believed,
and I am convinced
that he is able to guard until h that Day i what has been entrusted to me. 1
j Follow k the pattern of l the sound 1 words m that you have heard from me,
in n the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
By the Holy Spirit o who dwells within us,
guard i the good deposit entrusted to you.
