Matthew Browne, Eastside Parish Pastor, preaches from the book of 2nd Timothy.
2 Timothy 2:8-15 (Listen)
8 Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, 9 for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound! 10 Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 11 The saying is trustworthy, for:
If we have died with him, we will also live with him;
12 if we endure, we will also reign with him;
if we deny him, he also will deny us;
13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful—
for he cannot deny himself.
A Worker Approved by God
14 Remind them of these things, and charge them before God  not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,  a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. (ESV)
