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.

    2 Timothy is a good book to read, because God inspired Apostle Paul through the Holy Spirit to write it. Reading all of Paul's episode is inspiring for what he had to go through, even the beating and rejection from his other Apostles. All we have to do is read Romans through Philemon and find out why. Please let this go through in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. ......
