Generation Next First Timothy Session 1 Introduction

  4. 4. CHAPTER ONE 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus according to the command of God our Saviour and Christ Jesus our hope. 2 To Timothy my true child in the faith. Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
  5. 5. CHAPTER ONE 3 When I was going on to Macedonia I asked you to remain in Ephesus so that you could warn certain men not to teach other doctrines 4 or to give credence to myths and endless genealogies, which only promote speculations rather than stewarding what has come from God and works by faith.
  6. 6. CHAPTER ONE 5 The outworking of our instruction is love that flows from a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith. 6 Some people have missed this point. As a result they have become distracted by empty discussions. 7 They want to become teachers of the law even though they know neither what they are talking about nor the things they boldly assert.
  7. 7. CHAPTER ONE 8 There is no doubt that the law is good if a person uses it properly. 9 But the law was not designed to preoccupy righteous people but as a redemptive tool the rebellious, ungodly, sinful, unholy and profane people. It is for father-killers, mother-killers or murderers in general.
  8. 8. CHAPTER ONE 10 It is for those who are sexually immoral, homosexual, slave traders, liars, perjurers and for everything else that fails to produce well-being 11 that is consistent with the gospel entrusted to me by our glorious and blessed God.
  9. 9. CHAPTER ONE 12 I am grateful to Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength and considered me worthy to be appointed to serve him. 13 I was previously a blasphemer and an arrogant persecutor of his people. I was shown mercy because of my ignorance and unbelief. 14 The grace of God overflowed toward me, as did the faith and love that comes from Christ Jesus.
  10. 10. CHAPTER ONE 15 This is a trustworthy statement deserving full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, and I am the worst sinner of all. 16 I was shown mercy so that I would be a prime example of the great patience of Jesus toward even the worst of sinners so that others would be encouraged to believe in him and receive eternal life.
  11. 11. CHAPTER ONE 17 To the king of the ages, immortal, invisible, to God alone be honour and glory forever and ever, amen.
  12. 12. CHAPTER ONE 18 Timothy my son, I am giving this responsibility to you. It is consistent with the prophecies that were spoken to you previously so that you will be able them to keep fighting the good fight 19 by holding on to faith and a good conscience.
  13. 13. CHAPTER ONE Some people have thrown these away and their faith has been shipwrecked. 20 Hymeneus and Alexander are two such people. I have handed them over to Satan so that they might be taught not to blaspheme.
