Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 2 Timothy 1:4


1:4 Being mindful of thy tears - Perhaps frequently shed, as well as at the apostle's last parting with him.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 1:4


2Ti 1:4 Greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of thy tears. There is something pathetic in this language. The lonely prisoner calls to him the tears of Timothy at their last parting, and feels a yearning desire to see and counsel him face to face once more.

    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.
