1 Timothy 6:3

1 Timothy 6:3

There seems to be an increasing number of Christians in this Church dispensation, who find part of the gospel of Christ unpalatable.. refusing to use words like 'sin' and 'hell', 'repentance' and 'sacrifice' - for fear of offending anyone. Many like to speak forth their own supernaturally imparted 'wisdom' while denouncing the Word of God as an outdated historical document, that is better left on the shelf for posterity.

1 Timothy 6:4

1 Timothy 6:4

Paul insists that we teach what is in accord with sound doctrine, and throughout the Word of God, we are alerted to the importance of correct, biblical teaching. Indeed, we are warned of the consequences of being swayed by a different doctrine, which does not agree with the unchangeable truth, that is written in the Word of God, for our learning.

Sound doctrine is life and light to him who believes. It is the truth of God and the read more...

1 Timothy 6:6

1 Timothy 6:6

Disunity within the church generally emanates from a disagreement of doctrine. Too often when there is discord among believers, it is connected with an alternative interpretation of the Scriptures.

Throughout his writings, we recognised that many of the false doctrines that Paul needed to correct, stemmed from proud people reading into God’s Word what they wanted it to say. Instead of exergeting the Word of God literally and in context. They would read more...

1 Timothy 6:7

1 Timothy 6:7

The passing and transient nature of fallen humanity, on a cursed earth, is restated in many passages in the Bible. The grass withers in the field, and is soon cast into the furnace, while the beauty of a flower quickly fades away. The heaven and earth are also transient, for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are lasting and eternal.

Wealth and riches are not forever, and the crown of rulers read more...

1 Timothy 6:10

1 Timothy 6:10

Too often Bible verses or passages of Scripture are taken out of context or misquoted, which distorts the meaning, and can cause confusion to believers and unbelievers alike.

This verse in Timothy is one such example, which is both misquoted and altered. Indeed, songs have been written with the unbiblical words, “money is the root of all evil”, rather that the truth – the LOVE of money is A root of all sorts of evil.

1 Timothy 6:12

1 Timothy 6:12

The Christian life is a difficult struggle which contains many different pitfalls, which Paul describes as a good fight. It is not a fight against God but rather a struggle against the world, the flesh, the devil and our own self-will. Fighting the good fight of faith is not so much hostile combat against a physical enemy, but rather rising to a challenge of the Christian life, or confidently taking hold of the eternal life that is ours in Christ

1 Timothy 6:16

1 Timothy 6:16

Men and women of God are given an abundance of wise instruction on how to live godly lives, throughout the New Testament scriptures, and in the final part of his first epistle to Timothy, Paul sums up many of these important instructions and wise exhortation on godliness.

We are to shun false teachers We are to flee from worldly pursuits and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. We are to read more...

1 Timothy 6:17

1 Timothy 6:17

All wisdom is from God and all that we need for our learning is given in His Word. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the holy is understanding – and it all comes back to trusting the Lord at all times and for all things.

So often we are reminded to trust in the Lord with all our heart and not to rely on our own abilities and understandings and how frequently we are implored to cast all our cares and concerns upon read more...
