for so long 2nd timothy 1:13-14 was just any other verse, it didn’t move me for the many times i read it, it didn’t make any difference, it just sounded like any other, okay, i may be speaking for what you even don;t know, so i decide am reciting it, hoping my voice will be heard by your ears, though its your eyes receiving the message. 2nd Timothy chapter 1 verse 13 to 14, it says: “What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you-guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.” i read this for a number of times and i begin seeing more than just a group of words consistently attached to make up a meaningful sentence. i look beyond the words and see – The sound doctrine Timothy had received and was supposed to transmit to others. For without a continual spiritual energy man can do nothing. I clearly see paul telling him to Keep the original plan, sketch and structure of the gospel, acceptable and pleasing to God.
But i was not happy with myself, i was doing all this because i was to do a theme exposition on the same, i thought of ministering to a people what am getting for the first time, but He speaks to me and says, my daughter, worry not for its evident you will not speak of what you know, bu that which I have laid in your heart.
As i constantly and constantly read through these verses as i ministered, i realized God was doing a new thing in my life and decided i will be loyal to the gospel, and that which He has entrusted to me i will pass on to faithful and reliable men, ready to be used of the Lord as noble vessels. catch up with me here all days so we can together learn how to be loyal to the gospel and hear what the spirit is saying.
Blessings Dear ones.
-Paul recognized that Timothy could be faced with challenges and many enemies could attack him hence a call to watch.
– He challenges him to let his love to God, to man and to one another be the motive of all his good conduct.
