Wherefore I put thee in remembrance,
That thou stir up the gift of God,
Which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
But of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord,
Nor of me his prisoner:
But be thou partaker of the affliction of the gospel
According to the power of God;
Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling,
Not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace,
Which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
