the promise (s) i’m letting sink in today.

Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and imposters will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”                                                                                        
2 Timothy 3:12-13

persecuted- oppressed, abused, victimized, ill-treated, mistreated, tyrannized, tormented, tortured; martyred.

just as He promised,, things and people of this world are going on from bad to worse,, being deceived and deceiving others. and while persecution is a daily reality in other parts of the world,, as Christians in America we haven’t even begun to experience it….yet. 

thankfully,, there’s another promise,, and “{this} saying [promise] is trustworthy, for:
        [if we have died with Him, we will also live with Him;
          if we suffer [endure], we will also reign with Him…]
                                                                                     2 Timothy 2:11-12a

but let us also soberly consider that the rest of His promise is just as trustworthy and true.
              [… if we deny Him, he also will deny us…]
                                                                                         2 Timothy 12:b

and finally, rejoice in the last part of this promise,, {the beauty of His nature},,
              […if we are faithless, He remains faithful—for He cannot deny Himself. ]
                                                                                          2 Timothy 2:13
