2 Timothy 2:1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

We cannot avoid the affairs of life mentioned in Verse 4. But, we must be very sure that we do not become entangled in them. We must, through Christ and uncommon sense, master the affairs of life.

Hardness in Verse 3 is what we today call "hard times". So, good soldiers simply endure. Millions of saints and sinners have survived hard times before us. Have we learned from them, or will we repeat all the dumb choices? Hmmmmmmm

This song must appeal to a lot of people who have lost it all, or maybe people who have messed up so badly they have no more hope. Do you see these people every day. They are out there for sure. And, what do you offer them as a Bible believer?

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
