2 Timothy 2:5
Context
Grace and Perseverance

1You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2And the things that you have heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit you to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 3You therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4No man that wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who has chosen him to be a soldier. 5And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. 6The farmer that labors must be first partaker of the fruits. 7Consider what I say; and the Lord give you understanding in all things. 8Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: 9Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even to bonds; but the word of God is not bound. 10Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 11It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: 12If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: 13If we believe not, yet he stays faithful: he cannot deny himself.
