Bible Commentary for 2 Timothy 2:3

Wesley's Notes for 2 Timothy 2:3

2:2 The things - The wholesome doctrine, #2Timothy 1:13|. Commit - Before thou leavest Ephesus. To faithful men, who will be able, after thou art gone, to teach others.

2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself - Any more than is unavoidable. In the affairs of this life - With worldly business or cares. That - Minding war only, he may please his captain. In this and the next verse there is a plain allusion to the Roman law of arms, and to that of the Grecian games. According to the former, no soldier was to engage in any civil employment; according to the latter, none could be crowned as conqueror, who did not keep strictly to the rules of the game.

  • Jackie on 2 Timothy 2:3
    Suffering is a part of life when it come to living for Christ Jesus. Jesus suffer and die for my sin so why can 't I suffer for my own sin that I commit. As a soilder of Jesus Christ we have the faith and the power to handle what come our way. The word says: I can do all things through Christ who straingten me.
  • MockingBird on 2 Timothy 2:3
    Enduring hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ when you are taking a stand on God 's word for Jesus Christ. Gos has equipped us with His armor : helmet of salvation : breastplate of righteousness : loins girt about with Truth : feet shod with the gospel of peace : sword of the Spirit to quench the firey darts of the wicked shield of faith. Praying always with all prayer for all saints : Persecuted for righteousness sake. Many a time I have been put down for my faith in Jesus Christ through out the years I have been with my Lord .I will confess : I don 't know if I can do it when in front of a firing squad : If I ever have to , I believe my Lord God Almighty will equip me with every ounce of His strength. Amen !!

  • Karon on 2 Timothy 2:3
    God at times disciplines me through a trial. God can be depended upon. He may be asking me, can I depend on your faith? He knows the answer but He wants me to realize that my faith is strong and growing stronger as He molds me to a certainty in a life of faith.
  • Deborah on 2 Timothy 2:3
