The Faithful Man, Entrusts to Faithful Men (2 Timothy 2:1-13)Eric Peterman, March 6, 2016
Part of the II Timothy - Passing the Baton of the Faith series, taught at a Sunday Morning service
If you were entrusted with spectacular, invaluable special knowledge (like that found in the movie, National Treasure), how would you behave, who would you trust, and how would your life be different? Paul tells Timothy that because of the priceless treasure of apostolic doctrine he's been charged with, he must hold to the character of a soldier, an elite Praetorian Guard. But he also says that faithfulness is the character of Christ, and Timothy is to run according to the rules because Christ is at the end of the race with reward in hand.

2 Timothy 2:1-13
1Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 3Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 5And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. 6The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits. 7Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. 8Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: 9Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. 10Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 11It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: 12If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: 13If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. (KJV)
