Exhortations to a Christian worker (2 Timothy 2)

Be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

Like a soldier, don’t get sidetracked by civilian pursuits. Aim to please the one who enlisted you.

As a worker, aim for God’s approval so that you will not be ashamed. Handle the word of truth correctly and honestly.

Remind yourself of this foundation for assurance: 1. I am His. I am known by Him. 2. I must confirm and live up to this by turning my back on sin.

By setting yourself apart for God, you will be like a special tool he uses for special purposes; you will see the beauty of holiness and will prove useful to the Master.

“Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.” (NLT)

Be known as a gentle but committed servant of God. Don’t quarrel and don’t get involved in useless controversies. Aim at exalting God’s Word and God’s truth because it is able to change hearts and minds and save from the snares of the devil.
