TEXT: 2 TIMOTHY 3: 15 – 17
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Key Verse: Matthew 7: 24.
Therefore whosoever hearth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.
Timothy was the son of a Jewish woman who believed the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and his father was a Greek. Timothy was well reported of by the brethren that were in Lystra and Iconium. They then recommended him to Paul because they saw that he was fit to go out with him for ministry. Acts 16: 1-5.
The Christianity of immorality, examination malpractices, worldly dancing, drunkenness and witchcraft that is prevalent today is largely because youths are not trained in scriptures. If a youth is not raised up by the scriptures, it will be impossible to live up to God's standard. Paul said, 'Let no man despise your youth' because the man of God through the scriptures can be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good things. When it comes to Christianity, youths are not to be despised. Goliath made that mistake on David and lost his life.
The glory of the youth is in his strength. You too must not despise yourself and underrate what you can do for Jesus Christ. God chose you as a youth to serve Him, Paul noted the contribution Paul noted the his
his godly character as he grew up with them. We can see righteousness running through the family. Lois his grandmother was a believer. Eunice his mother too was a believer and gave much attention to training him in the way of the Lord. Please submit yourself to your godly parents so they may raise you up in the way of the Lord through scriptures. Timothy was genuinely Born Again and was true and sound believer, whose heart had been sanctified by God. This is how God wants you to be. You must not be a hypocrite. Take Christianity serious as Timothy took it. He had nothing to do with occultism, drugs, fornication, fighting, lying, cheating, robbery, kidnapping, rituals killings. Timothy's life showed evidence of good parental training.
Thought for the day:
The glory of the youth is in his strength.
Song for the day:
We are soldiers, soldiers of the Lord……
Bible reading for the day:
1 Samuel 10-12; Luke 13:22-35
