2 Timothy 1:3-13

MSG 3 Every time I say your name in prayer - which is practically all the time - I thank God for you, the God I worship with my whole life in the tradition of my ancestors. NIV 3 I thank God, whom I serve, as my ancestors did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. MSG 4 I miss you a lot, especially when I remember that last tearful good-bye, and I look forward to a joy-packed reunion. NIV 4 Recalling your tears, I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy. MSG 5 That precious memory triggers another: your honest faith - and what a rich faith it is, handed down from your grandmother Lois to your mother Eunice, and now to you! NIV 5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. MSG 6 And the special gift of ministry you received when I laid hands on you and prayed - keep that ablaze! NIV 6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. MSG 7 God doesn't want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible. NIV 7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. MSG 8 So don't be embarrassed to speak up for our Master or for me, his prisoner. Take your share of suffering for the Message along with the rest of us. We can only keep on going, after all, by the power of God, NIV 8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God. MSG 9 who first saved us and then called us to this holy work. We had nothing to do with it. It was all his idea, a gift prepared for us in Jesus long before we knew anything about it. NIV 9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, MSG 10 But we know it now. Since the appearance of our Savior, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus. NIV 10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. MSG 11 This is the Message I've been set apart to proclaim as preacher, emissary, and teacher. NIV 11 And of this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher. MSG 12 It's also the cause of all this trouble I'm in. But I have no regrets. I couldn't be more sure of my ground - the One I've trusted in can take care of what he's trusted me to do right to the end. NIV 12 That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day. MSG 13 So keep at your work, this faith and love rooted in Christ, exactly as I set it out for you. It's as sound as the day you first heard it from me. NIV 13 What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus.
