2 Timothy 2:1-6 CJB

1 So then, you, my son, be empowered by the grace that comes from the Messiah Yeshua.
2 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.
3 Accept your share in suffering disgrace as a good soldier of the Messiah Yeshua.
4 No soldier on duty gets involved with civilian affairs, since he has to please his commanding officer.
5 Also an athlete can't win a contest unless he competes according to the rules.
6 The farmer who has done the hard work should be the first to receive a share of the harvest.
