2 Timothy 1:15–18 (ESV)
Guard The Deposit Entrusted to You (Part 3)
15 You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains, 17 but when he arrived in Rome he searched for me earnestly and found me— 18 may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that Day!—and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesus.

Alone in prison and abandoned by many of his friends, Paul fondly remembers the encouragement he received from Timothy’s sincere faith. Exhorting Timothy never to be ashamed of the faith he has been given, Paul exults in the promise of Christ, for whose sake he is imprisoned. Instead of feeling self-conscious about being Christian, we must share in Paul’s forthright confession: “I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed” (v 12). Our Lord Jesus Christ shall never let us go.

I pray:  Thank You, Lord Jesus, that You never leave me or forsake me. Amen.
