2nd Timothy study, recap for chapter one

Hi y'all! My Dad had a great idea this morning, to have a recap post at the end of the study of each chapter. So, that's what we are going to do today.

I am not going to do all of the verses, but here are the points that I saw that Paul makes in 2nd Timothy chapter one.
  • He really wants to see Timothy again. Verse four.
  • Timothy has a strong faith (unfeigned faith), and his grand-mother and mother also believed. Verse five.
  • Paul writes about the spirit that God gives us (not a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind). Verse seven.
  • He tells Timothy not to be ashamed (of the testimony of the Lord, and of him). Verse eight.
  • He says that he is not ashamed (of his sufferings). Verse twelve.
  • He tells what he is (Preacher, apostle, and teacher). Verse eleven.
  • He tells Timothy to "hold fast to sound faith and love..."(to tell others about God, just as Paul has told him). Verse thirteen.
  • He writes about the many people who deserted him (including Phygellus and Hermongenes), and the one who was faithful (Onesiphorus). Verses fifteen through eighteen.
I hope all those links work right! :) I pray that you all are getting a lot out of this and we all get something out of the study of this book. God bless! Have a great week!
