This message begins by calling us to Remember, firstly Jesus Christ, then those who are suffering for the Gospel. Paul then calls us to remember the elect, who are the focus of our ministry and finally to remember the security of our position in Christ.
2 Timothy 2:8-13 English Standard Version (ESV)
8 Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, 9 for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound! 10 Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 11 The saying is trustworthy, for:
If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
12 if we endure, we will also reign with him;
if we deny him, he also will deny us;
13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful—
for he cannot deny himself.
