THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO TIMOTHY

CHAPTER 1
 

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT BIBLE VERSE

          A very warm welcome back to Daily Bread, and the beginning of our study of The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy. Paul begins his letter with a short introduction. From Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God our Savior, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope. To Timothy, my own son in the faith. Grace, mercy and peace to you from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

          First, letís get a little background on Timothy. You might say that Timothy was one of Paulís favorite fellow-Christians, and a close and trusted friend. It also sounds as though Timothy is much younger than Paul, because Paul refers to him as his ďson in the faithĒ. In Acts 16:1, youíll find however, that Timothy is not Paulís biological son.

          When I went into Macedonia, I asked you to stay in Ephesus so that you would instruct the people not to teach any other doctrine or listen to any other fables and endless stories which cause disputes rather than godly edifying in Faith. Now the end (goal) of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of Faith unfeigned (with no pretending ... in other words, sincere faith).

          Take a minute here to notice something. THE commandment that Paul is speaking of is what Jesus said was the most important of all ... Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind and to love your neighbor as yourself. Youíll notice in the New Testament, that the Apostles wrote about THE commandment in a singular sense, which is exactly what God intended. The commandments of the Old Testament are replaced by THE new commandment and the New Testament. Old laws, replaced by A new promise. If you follow THE commandment, if it is written in your heart, then you will want to follow all of God's laws. The Apostles talk about it as though itís understood that they are referring to The Greatest Commandment (Matthew 22:36).

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT BIBLE LESSON WITH FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT BIBLE EXPLANATION

          But even back then, just as now, many find it hard to accept this, so Paul tells Timothy, Some people have swerved and turned aside (from the TRUTH) with foolish talking, wanting to be teachers of the law, without understanding what they say or of what they agree with. But we know that the law is good if it is used lawfully, knowing that the law isnít made for the righteous, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, murderers of fathers and mothers, for killers, for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there is any other thing that is against sound doctrine, according to the glorious Gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has made it possible for me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into the ministry. Before that, I was a blasphemer, a persecutor, and insulting, but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly, in unbelief.

          Now, if humility was what Jesus was looking for when He chose Paul to be the Apostle to the Gentiles, youíll see by the next four sentences that Paul certainly filled that requirement.

1 Timothy 1:14-17
And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.  Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

          We should all strive to be so humble. Next Paul says, This responsibility I give to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies told before, that by remembering them you might fight a good fight, keeping faith and a good conscience. I have delivered (handed over) Hymenśus and Alexander to satan, so theyíll learn not to blaspheme (speak evil) because they have rejected their faith and become ruined.

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT BIBLE INFORMATION WITH FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT BIBLE MEANING

          So, here Paul is warning Timothy, because their acquaintances had turned away from the Faith and ruined their lives. This is the first weíve heard of Hymenśus, but you remember Alexander from the book of Acts 19:33-34, standing up for the cause of Christians. Well, apparently now Alexander had turned away from the Faith, and Paul didnít want Timothy to be influenced by that in any way.

          My friend ... There are many things that will become as obstacles as you fight the fight of Faith, too. Your peers, your age, your lack of age, your ethnicity, your attire, your family, your economic standing, time, sometimes even those within the Church, you name it. Paul knew that Timothy would be faced with obstacles too, and being a prominent leader in the infancy of Christianity, he would no doubt be a prime target for evil to try and rear itís ugly head at, to try and stop all TRUTH from spreading. So do as Paul taught and FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT.

          Weíll continue with Paulís letter to Timothy next time, so be sure to come back soon and find out whatís next, right here at Daily Bread.
