A Trustworthy Saying

From Series: Guard the Truth, Volume 2

2 Timothy 2:11-13  (ID: 3042)

Sometimes a hymn can help us understand important Gospel truths. In 2 Timothy 2, the Apostle Paul quoted a hymn that was sung by the early Church, using it to present four key points about a believer’s relationship to the Lord Jesus. Alistair Begg explains how these four points demonstrate that God is faithful to both His promises and His warnings. Both call us to repent and believe in Him.


11The saying is trustworthy, for:

If we have died with him, we will also live with him;

12if we endure, we will also reign with him;

if we deny him, he also will deny us;

13if we are faithless, he remains faithful—

for he cannot deny himself.
