2 Timothy 1:12
For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
A Closer Look
Paul is in prison at the time in which he writes this letter. It is a hard time for him, as prisons back in Paul's time were completely different than the ones that prisoners have today. Dark, dirty, smelly, and chained to soldiers.
Paul writes that he wasn't ashamed of being in prison because he knew for sure who he believed in. None other than Christ. And he was persuaded that Christ was able to guard what Paul had entrusted to Him until the day of Christ's returned.
We too can commit our suffering to Christ. Paul continued to do good by witnessing to anyone that came into his cell. We too can do good and witness or tell those around us about Christ. We can have the faith that Paul had and know that Christ will
guard what we have entrusted to Him until He returns.
Father, may we be as bold as Paul was and have the kind of faith that he had. May we be not afraid to tell others about You. Also that we would know without a doubt that whatever we have entrusted to You that you will guard it. We asked this in the Name of Jesus.
