2 Timothy 1:8-18 - Are you good with being a martyr? Actually, according to the original use of the word (like "testimony" is this passage), each Christian is asked to be a martyr, a witness for Jesus. A "martyr" has come to be known as someone who dies because of their testimony for Jesus. Is this relationship with Jesus that you have worth dieing for? Is it worthy speaking up about? Our passage today assures us that it's worthy everything that we're willing to surrender.
