“May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains” (2 Timothy 1:16).

*We encourage you to engage scripture personally by doing three very distinct and deliberate things anytime someone presents the Word of God: ask questions, make observations, and find the personal application. There is space provided for your own notes on this section of scripture.
