2 Timothy 2:1-7

2 You then, my son, BE STRONG IN THE GRACE THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS.2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. 3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 7 Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.

Written by PAUL

15 You know that everyone in the province of Asia has deserted me, including Phygelus and Hermogenes.16May the Lord show mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, because he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains .

[ 2 Timothy 1:15-16]

6 For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near.

[ 2 Timothy 4:16]

Written by PAUL

15 You know that everyone in the province of Asia has deserted me, including Phygelus and Hermogenes.

[ 2 Timothy 1:15-16]

9 DO YOUR BEST TO COME TO ME QUICKLY, 10 for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me and has gone to Thessalonica.  Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia. 11 Only Luke is with me.

[ 2 Timothy 4:9-11]

Written by PAUL

  • Who was in prison
  • Who was anticipating death
  • Who was lonesome due to colleagues’ ministry assignments and to desertion of colleagues
slide7

First Letter of PAUL to TIMOTHY

  • Who was young & naturally timid
  • Who was dealing with false teaching
  • Who had a stomach ailment
  • Who let people took advantage of him finding it difficult to assert his authority
slide8

Second Letter for TIMOTHY

6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.

[ 2 Timothy 1:6-8]

Second Letter for TIMOTHY

  • Whose enthusiasm for ministry is Fading
  • Whose timidity is Furthering
  • Whose fear for suffering is Feasible

2 Timothy 2:1-7

2 You then, my son, BE STRONG IN THE GRACE THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS.2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. 3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 7 Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.

Becoming Stronger in God’s Grace

Be a wise steward for Christ

Be a dedicated soldier for Christ

Be a committed athlete for Christ

Be a hardworking farmer for Christ

slide12

1. Wise Steward for Christ

2And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. 

  • Be wise to invest time & efforts with people who are reliable & are serious with God
  • Pray for & identify Faithful, Available, Teachable believers (FAT believers)
  • Equip and Empower these FAT believers
slide13

Wise in Investing Time with People

17 As iron sharpens iron,    so one person sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.

1 Corinthians 15:33

slide14

2. Dedicated Soldier for Christ

3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 

  • Be wise with your goals and priorities
  • Beware of worldly, temporal cares and values
  • Be always ready to please our commanding officer : GOD rather than people
slide15

Beware of worries & cares of this world: Matthew 6:31-34

31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

slide16

Beware of the deceitfulness of riches: Mark 4:18-19

18 Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19 but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. 

slide17

3. Committed Athlete for Christ

5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules.

  • Be committed to success – obedience to the rules
  • Be very familiar with the rule book: Word of God
  • Be obedient to the rule book
slide18

Paul came out a winner

6 For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing..

2 Timothy 4:6-8

slide19

Be committed to success, be obedient to the rule book

8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Joshua 1:8

slide20

Be obedient, love is action & love is obedience

46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 

Luke 6:46

21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”

John 14:21

slide21

4. Hardworking Farmer for Christ

6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.

  • Be persevering
  • Beware of laziness
  • Be expectant:
    • Expect results
    • Expect to be rewarded for your efforts
slide22

Be persevering, not lazy, be expectant:

9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:9

58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:58
