OldTruth.com on MacArthur on Paul on Timothy – Whew!
Jim Bublitz at OldTruth.com has a great summary of the instructions that Paul gives Timothy in the 2 epistles that bear the latter’s name. Jim pulled the list from MacArthur’s Ashamed of the Gospel, and I will no doubt crib from Jim’s copy as I assist one of our elders in a small group study of 1 Timothy over the next 9 months…
Jim summarizes the list thusly:
To sum it all up in five categories, Paul commanded Timothy: 1) to be faithful in his preaching of biblical truth; 2) to be bold in exposing and refuting error; 3) to be an example of godliness to the flock; 4) to be diligent and work hard in the ministry; and 5) to be willing to suffer hardship and persecution in his service for the Lord.
