2 Timothy 2:1-4
You then, my son, be strong
in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
And the things you have heard me say in the
presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men
who will also be qualified to teach others.
Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs
he wants to please his commanding officer.
