The Disciplined Church (2 Timothy 2:1-7)David De Bruyn, June 4, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series.
Christians can mistake the doctrine of grace with passivity, and give way to spiritual laziness. Paul instructs Timothy as to the heart of spiritual discipline, which is to find incarnation in the life of the individual Christian and the local church.

2 Timothy 2:1-7
1Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 3Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 5And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. 6The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits. 7Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. (KJV)
