2 Timothy 2.11-13 – June 18, 2020

2 Timothy 2:11–13

Here is a trustworthy saying: 

If we died with him,
we will also live with him;
12 if we endure,
we will also reign with him.
If we disown him,
he will also disown us;
13 if we are faithless,
he remains faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.

(2 Timothy 2:11–13, NIV)

Paul’s second letter to Timothy is in many ways his last will and testament, including trustworthy sayings for Paul’s young follower Timothy to remember.

Thought Questions:

Why does dying with Christ also mean living with him? In what ways do we often think these things complete opposites of one another?

What things do you find most challenging about enduring with Christ? What are ways that help you overcome the temptation to not continue to ensure?

How comforting is it to know that God’s love for you is based on his faithfulness, not ours?
