Paul's challenge to Timothy gets very real and personal in this passage. Paul gives Timothy the job description for the pastor. Paul is direct in his challenge. We as pastors... as believers... need to implement these directives in each of our lives.
Pastor Paul continues this week with the look at the book of II Timothy. As we continue in our walk with God, we must be sure of what we know and certain of where we learned it. This way, our foundation will be the Rock and we will not be moved.
In 2 Timothy 3:10-14 we start the final charge from Paul to Timothy. He tells Timothy to remember the past and the lessons Paul mentored him in. It is a sober warning that those who express and live by faith in God should expect persecution. Paul tells Timothy to continue and endure. To make a real difference.
