Journey through the New Testament: 1 and 2 Timothy

1 Timothy

‘Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners’ (1:15). To each of us, God says, ‘Watch your life and doctrine closely’ (4:16). What we believe is important. How we live is also important. If our faith is real, it will lead to a change in our way of life. There is a great battle going on, between God and Satan. We must ‘give the enemy no opportunity to slander us’. We must take care how we live, ‘so that God’s Name… may not be slandered’ (5:14; 6:1).

2 Timothy

Serve the Lord in the ‘power’ of ‘the Holy Spirit’  (1:7). Be ‘lovers of God’ rather than ‘lovers of self’ (3:4,2). What kind of preaching do we need? Do we need ‘teachers who will tell us what we want to hear’ (4:3)? No! We need preachers who will say ‘what the Spirit says to the churches’ (Revelation 2:7).
