1 Timothy 1:16-18 New Life Version (NLV)
16 And yet God had loving-kindness for me. Jesus Christ used me to show how long He will wait for even the worst sinners. In that way, others will know they can have life that lasts forever also. 17 We give honor and thanks to the King Who lives forever. He is the One Who never dies and Who is never seen. He is the One Who knows all things. He is the only God. Let it be so.
The Good Fight of Faith
18 Timothy, my son, here is my word to you. Fight well for the Lord! God’s preachers told us you would.
