Instructions (1 Timothy)

Weekly Rap-Up with 1-Lyfe

Timothy was Paul’s predecessor and loyal son-in-the-faith. He was young, but faithful to the gospel and to Paul. In Paul’s first letter to him, we find encouragement to stay strong and not be timid due to his young age. And more importantly, he tells the young minister to defend the faith and spread the message of the Kingdom.

To my fam in The Faith, stay away from a gospel that’s fake. It’s falsified they deny the fact that all can be saved (1:3), Jews and Gentiles alike. We’re one and the same (1:15) because we’re saved from the penalty that’s after the grave. Don’t be swayed by false teaching from heathens with swift speaking (4:2) because they’re like ravenous wolves, they savage on sheep sleeping, attacking while we’re peeping, apostasy straight creeping. Believe them and you’re in danger, you follow doctrines of demons so, (4:1) don’t get caught in idle talk and disputes (1:6). Instead guard your flock and show them how to walk in the truth. Don’t ever let anybody despise your youth (4:12). Be an example through your actions in everything that you do (4:12).

What it is? It’s the Church. Listen in. Put in work. No more church corruption. No more church destruction. First Timothy. These are your instructions.

Writing to Christians fulfilling the Great Commission. While we’re out upon the block calling all the lost to repentance (2:4), fulfilling evangelism regardless if we’re in prison. Rep the risen until they listen we got a vision for missions, rewriting the definition of doing our Father’s business. We’re the witness to the paganist nations making a difference. Christ is the mediator who takes and changed our existence (2:5) because we’ve fallen from the state where He made us naked and sinless. The ransom was paid for men who were depraved (2:5-6). The death and the grave couldn’t hold Him, He rose in three days. The Ancient of Days crushed Him like a can under weight to provide an escape route so that men could be saved. The sin that we crave left us feeling lonely and pain. While we was trapped in our transgressions like a rat in a maze. The sacrifice that Christ provided is the only way (2:5). If death were today remember me by spreading The Faith.

Now saints in these last days some will depart from The Faith (4:1). Follow deceitful teachings preached by the god’s of this age (4:1). That’s why I urge you to remain in the ways you’ve been trained (4:6). Provide a self-examination so that you won’t be strayed. Beware of the wolf rocking the sheep’s fit. They deceive quick, able with fables and street myths (1:4). As the clock ticks so our condition gets more sick. Our condition is fallen so Christ gave us a free gift. For this end saints we toil and strive (4:10). Because we set our hope and our worship on the God that’s alive (4:10). Who’s redeeming His people that’s the reason He died (4:10). Christ is our satisfaction so in Him we abide. Last but not least these things I charge unto you. Pursue godliness and do it like He’s calling you to (6:11). Shepherd the flock continue teaching them in wisdom and truth. Until the day we meet again fam. Grace be with you (6:21).
