2 Timothy 1:12b, “I am not ashamed!”

The verse we are looking at tonight is the key verse around which Martyn Lloyd Jones writes his book, “I am not ashamed.” I personally have always found this verse encouraging and I suppose it has some nostalgia for me as when I was growing up Mum used to belong to a choir, and they would sometimes sing the hymn, “I know not why God’s wondrous grace to me he has made known.” What Paul tells us in this text is that he is not ashamed because “He knows who he has believed!” As a Christians, as an Apostle of Christ, he feels confident in God! He feels confident in Jesus Christ. He knows that one whom he has placed his confidence and he knows that he will never be let down!
