2 Timothy 1:12 (KJV) For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
Paul is not ashamed of the things he had to go through because of his ministry for Jesus Christ. We should not be ashamed of our work for the Lord either. Paul believed in the Lord, and he knew the Lord was able to keep him and protect him from everything. He also knew that Jesus was able to take care of him even until the Rapture.
