Therefore, do not be ashamed of the witness of our Lord nor me, his prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began but now has been revealed by the appearance of our savior, Christ Jesus, who on the one hand abolished death but on the other brought life and immortality through the gospel, in which I was appointed as herald, apostle, and teacher, and for this reason I suffer these things, but I am not ashamed, for I know the one in whom I have put my trust, and I am convinced that he is able to guard my deposit on that day. (2 Tim 1:8-12)
