Main point summary
Therefore, Timothy, as you have been called, preach the whole word of God understanding that you are preaching to sinners, some of whom will fall away, and some of whom will persecute you, just like how they have persecuted me [Paul]. Learn from my example, endure your calling, because by doing so, you shall receive your reward when Christ returns to judge the world.
