Conclusion: Those who have work to do for the Lord must stir themselves up as soldiers to do it, and strengthen themselves for it in His power. They must count upon suffering, even unto death. Therefore, they must carefully train up others in the faith to succeed them, who in turn will approve themselves as good soldiers as well.
Striking Facts: 2 Timothy 2:8
“Remember Jesus Christ”—raised from the dead. This is the great proof of the Christian mission, and the confirmation of the truth of the Gospel. Let suffering saints remember this. His incarnation and resurrection, heartily believed, will support the follower of Messiah Jesus under all testings of the present life.
