So then, you, my son, be empowered by the grace that comes from the Messiah Yeshua.
And the things you heard from me, which were supported by many witnesses, these things commit to faithful people, such as will be competent to teach others also.
Accept your share in suffering disgrace as a good soldier of the Messiah Yeshua.
No soldier on duty gets involved with civilian affairs, since he has to please his commanding officer.
Also an athlete can't win a contest unless he competes according to the rules.
The farmer who has done the hard work should be the first to receive a share of the harvest.
