…in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 2 Timothy 2:25

Paul’s words of exhortation to “the servant of the Lord” continue on. He just said that the minister “must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient…” Now in the same thought he says, “in humility correcting those who are in opposition.” This is obvious.Read the rest

And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 2 Timothy 2:24

Paul is still speaking primarily of ministers here, the letter being a pastoral epistle. However, as the minister is to be an example for the flock, the words are to be carried into the hearts of all believers, and they are to be then acted upon by them.Read the rest

Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 2 Timothy 2:22

Paul has noted that ministers are to “depart from iniquity” (2:19). He then brought in the idea of vessels of gold, silver, wood, and clay, noting that when properly cleansed, they will be vessels for honor which are “sanctified and useful for the Master.” Now, he continues with an exhortation that ministers are to “Flee also youthful lusts.” This ties in well with his thought of 1 Corinthians 6:8.Read the rest
