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.

    Apostle Paul full of Grace could not hide his feelings or Love for his Spiritual Son "Timothy" haven recognized the unwavering or unshakable faith of Timothy which He traced to his grandmother and his biological mother Eunice. However, Apostle Paul in his advise encourage Timothy not to consider his age, but rather depend on the Grace of God ( The God's ability). Make alive the gift of God in you.

  • i was diagnosed with a serious form of mental illness. Another patient gave me this verse. It freed me for sure. And is very special to me.
