In this section, Paul shows us how as Christians we should respond to our security in Christ. We are to follow the teachings and guard the deposit. Many have turned away under pressure, but Onesiphorus is held up as an example of practical Christian living.
2 Timothy 1:13-18 English Standard Version (ESV)
13 Follow the pattern of the sound[a] words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 14 By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.
15 You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains, 17 but when he arrived in Rome he searched for me earnestly and found me— 18 may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that day!—and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesus.
