Today you should read: 1 Timothy 6:11-21
After talking about the bad fruit from false teachers and following the world, the apostle Paul encourages Timothy to FLEE such things in verse 11. When fleeing we must then intentionally run the other way and pursue what he discusses at the conclusion of this letter. These things include righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness and gentleness.
With this in mind, and reminding Timothy of what we confess along with Jesus Himself professed to Pontius Pilate (v. 12-16)… Jesus is King….. ayyyyyye Kanye West 😉 we must guard what we are entrusted with in the Gospel (v. 20-21).
What a great reminder and conclusion to the letter. We are doing eternal kingdom work when pursuing and confessing Christ as King. All of these instructions for the church and leaders within the church pays eternal kingdom dividends and we are to remember the important work God has entrusted us with. If we don’t, like Paul warns in verse 21, we can swerve from the true faith.
