Wesley's Notes for 2 Timothy 1:12


1:12 That which I have committed to him - My soul. Until that day - Of his final appearing.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 1:12


2Ti 1:12 For which cause I also suffer these things. Because he was appointed "a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles" (2Ti 1:11). Compare Ac 22:21 Eph 3:1. That which I have committed to him against that day. His whole interests, his life, body, soul and spirit. He leaves all in God's hands with perfect confidence.

    To Jerry - How were you baptized? in the'words' of Matt.28:19 or in the NAME of Jesus of Acts 2:38? There is a difference. note - JESUS very words of Matt. 28:19, "baptizing them in the NAME of....." father, son, and holy ghost are His- titles; His name is JESUS. Acts 4:12 - "for here is NONE other name under heaven whereby we MUST be saved."

    Yes, V7, is a blessing, as we live here on the Navajo Reservation, "Skin Walkers" everywhere on this Rez. Putting the "spook" on people, and people so afraid! But His Promises enable us to keep on going for the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen. Excellent verse, tremendously "POWERFUL!" Thank God, that I am saved, and one day He is coming back for us...Keep believing, keep on trusting him, it's almost over.
  • Alex
    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Fear has no place in the life of a believer, love covers a multitude of sin and our memories are blessed. As many as accepted HIM HE gave the power to become the sons of God.
