Paul’s Exhortations to Timothy
How will we escape? Heb 2:3
keep in full flame
inflame one’s mind, strength, zeal
How else can we become God’s approved workman?
2 Tim 2:15
our idiom, “into it”
Do we see ourselves as a soldier
on active duty? 2 Tim 2:4
Are we putting out the sustained effort that will
ensure salvation for ourselves and others?
