Encouraging Timothy

Paul to Timothy: Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity (1 Timothy 4:12, NKJV).

Who Wrote 2 Thessalonians?

Paul, Timothy, and Silas (1:1).

Paul’s Friends

In verses 9-12, Paul urges the Corinthians to support Timothy and greet Apollos when he has the chance to meet them.

Making Connections

Paul is always making new friends and allies.

In verses 1-8, he meets Priscilla and Aquila, collaborates with Silas and Timothy, and converts synagogue leaders Titius Justus and Crispus.

Timothy’s Initiation

Ouch. In verses 1-5, we read about Timothy’s circumcision.

Paul does this to make it easier for Timothy to minister to the Jewish Christians.

About Prayer in 1 Timothy

In 1 Timothy 2 and 4, Paul reminds Timothy of the importance of “petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving.”

He particularly tells Timothy that people should always pray for their leaders.

I don’t pray for my leaders often.  I should do this more.

Suffering

In 2:3, Paul writes, “Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.”

We are not called to pursue suffering for its own sake, but only in service to the higher purpose of serving Christ.

Who can you suffer with today?
