2 Timothy 2:3-7
3 You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. 5 And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer must be first to partake of the crops. 7 Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.
Paul to Timothy:
Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
Take with me your share of hardship passing through the difficulties which you are called to endure, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
