2 Timothy 1

Timothy Charged to Guard His Trust

1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus [a]by the will of God, according to the promise of life in Christ Jesus,

To Timothy, my beloved [b]son: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience [c]the way my forefathers did, as I constantly remember you in my [d]prayers night and day, longing to see you, even as I recall your tears, so that I may be filled with joy. [e]For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well. For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of [f]timidity, but of power and love and [g]discipline.

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity, 10 but now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher. 12 For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him [h]until that day. 13 [i]Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 14 Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the [j]treasure which has been entrusted to you.

15 You are aware of the fact that all who are in [k]Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 The Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my [l]chains; 17 but when he was in Rome, he eagerly searched for me and found me— 18 the Lord grant to him to find mercy from the Lord on that day—and you know very well what services he rendered at Ephesus.

Knijga O Kristu

Druga poslanica Timoteju 1

Mojemu ljubljenom sinu Timoteju.Neka ti naš Bog Otac i naš Gospodin Isus Krist podare milost, milosrđe i mir.

Poticaj na vjernost

Timoteju, zahvaljujem za tebe Bogu, kojemu služim čiste savjesti kao i moji preci, dok se bez prestanka, danonoćno, molim za tebe.

Kad se sjetim tvojih suza, obuzme me čežnja da te opet vidim i da se razveselim.

Znam kakvu iskrenu vjeru u Boga imaš - kao najprije tvoja baka Loida, a zatim i tvoja mati Eunika.

Zato te molim: raspiruj duhovni dar koji ti je Bog dao kad sam na tebe položio ruke.

Jer Bog nam nije dao duha bojažljivosti, već Duha snage, ljubavi i razboritosti.

Ne srami se govoriti o našemu Gospodinu niti o meni, iako sam u zatvoru! Budi spreman sa mnom trpjeti zaradi navješćivanja Radosne vijesti. Bog će ti za to dati snage.

On nas je spasio i pozvao nas da živimo svetim životom - ne zato što smo to svojim djelima zaslužili, nego zato što je to bio njegov naum još od vječnosti: da nam daruje svoju milost u Isusu Kristu.

10 Sada nam je sve to objavio dolaskom našega Spasitelja Isusa Krista, koji je skršio moć smrti i učinio da kroz Radosnu vijest zasja život i besmrtnost.

11 Bog me je postavio da budem propovjednik, apostol i učitelj te Radosne vijesti.

12 Zato i trpim ovdje u tamnici. Ali ne stidim se toga jer poznajem onoga u koga se pouzdajem i siguran sam da je on kadar sačuvati povjereno do dana svojega dolaska.

13 Uzor neka ti bude zdravo učenje koje si od mene čuo u vjeri i ljubavi u Kristu Isusu.

14 Dobro čuvaj blago koje ti je povjereno s pomoću Svetoga Duha.

15 Kao što znaš, svi kršćani u Maloj Aziji su me napustili - među njima i Figel i Hermogen.

16 Neka Gospodin milosrđem daruje Oneziforov dom jer me je često znao osvježiti svojim posjetom. Nije se sramio što sam u zatvoru.

17 Naprotiv, kad je došao u Rim, brižno me potražio i pronašao.

18 Neka mu Gospodin daruje milosrđe na dan Kristova dolaska. Znaš koliko mi je puta pomogao u Efezu.
