Paul in his second letter to Timothy instructs believers to make a stand and be good soldiers of Jesus Christ. There are many things that can derail the Christian while we wait for the Lord’s return but the Apostle Paul wants to encourage all believers to stand strong and be a faithful testimony.

Bible Scripture: Darby Translation 

2 Timothy 2:1-6Thou therefore, my child, be strong in the grace which [is] in Christ Jesus. And the things thou hast heard of me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, such as shall be competent to instruct others also. Take thy share in suffering as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one going as a soldier entangles himself with the affairs of life, that he may please him who has enlisted him as a soldier. And if also any one contend [in the games], he is not crowned unless he contend lawfully. The husbandman must labour before partaking of the fruits.”
