Share In Suffering

Noel Heikkinen

2 Timothy

Nothing can shake the Word of God. How do you respond to the differences between culture and what the Bible says? Pastor Noel Jesse Heikkinen reminds us that we must always submit to the sound teaching of Scripture and consciously rank ourselves beneath the Word.

2 Timothy

Watch Watch
Listen Listen

You, therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 2:1 CSB


What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, commit to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

2 Timothy 2:2 CSB


Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 2:3 CSB


No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in the concerns of civilian life; he seeks to please the commanding officer. Also, if anyone competes as an athlete, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. The hardworking farmer ought to be the first to get a share of the crops. Consider what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.

2 Timothy 2:4-7 CSB


Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead and descended from David, according to my gospel, for which I suffer to the point of being bound like a criminal. But the word of God is not bound. This is why I endure all things for the elect: so that they also may obtain salvation, which is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

2 Timothy 2:8-10 CSB


This saying is trustworthy:
For if we died with him,
we will also live with him;
if we endure, we will also reign with him;
if we deny him, he will also deny us;
if we are faithless, he remains faithful,
for he cannot deny himself.

2 Timothy 2:11-13 CSB


Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to fight about words. This is useless and leads to the ruin of those who listen. Be diligent to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth. Avoid irreverent and empty speech, since those who engage in it will produce even more godlessness, and their teaching will spread like gangrene.

2 Timothy 2:14-17 CSB


Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also those of wood and clay; some for honorable use and some for dishonorable. So if anyone purifies himself from anything dishonorable, he will be a special instrument, set apart, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.

2 Timothy 2:20-21 CSB
