2 Timothy Outline
2 Timothy 4:22

22 The Lord be with your 1aspirit. 2bGrace be with you.

221 This book, which gives instructions on how to confront the degradation of the church, strongly stresses our spirit. In the beginning it emphasizes that a strong, loving, and sound spirit was given to us, a spirit by which we can fan the gift of God into flame and suffer evil with the gospel according to the power of God and the Lord's life-imparting grace (1:6-10). In the conclusion it blesses us by emphasizing the Lord's being with our spirit that we may enjoy Him as grace in order to stand against the downward current of the church's decline and carry out God's economy through His indwelling Spirit (1:14) and equipping word (3:16-17).
