Trajectory Of Faithfulness

February 17th, 2024

2 Timothy 4:1-8

As one who had fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith (v. 7), Paul could emphasize to his younger colleague the importance of being a good steward of the gospel and of the faith resources that God has given the church. Notwithstanding the chaos created by the many false teachers in Ephesus, Timothy was to preach the Word faithfully, nourish the flock with sound teaching and gracious correction, and announce the good news of Christ to those who did not know Him yet. Moreover, he was to do all this with a sense of readiness, a clear mind, much patience, and the resilience needed to continue on when circumstances are adverse.

Paul was basically saying to Timothy that he wanted the trajectory of Timothy’s life to be a continuation of the trajectory of his own life and ministry.

This is great advice for us as well. So, may our words and life example today follow the trajectory of faithfulness that God asks of us. May we put to good use the faith resources He has given us.

    This commentary by Davide is a tremendous encouragement to me for what as a pastor retired (if I could) that the call remains. Pauls admonishment was to a young minister, Timothy but also to this old minister (me).
