always remember that jesus christ, a descendant of king david, was raised from the dead. this is the good news I preach. and because I preach this good news, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. but the word of God cannot be chained! so I am willing to endure anything if it will bring salvation and eternal glory in christ jesus to those God has chosen. This is a trustworthy saying: if we die with him, we will also live with him. If we endure hardship, we will reign with him. if we deny him, he will deny us. If we are unfaithful, HE REMAINS FAITHFUL for he cannot deny who he is. remind everyone of these things.
