11-6-13 GUARDIANS OF THE TRUTH

11-6-13

1 Timothy 6:20-21 “O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”— which some have professed and thus gone astray from the faith. Grace be with you.”


Christians in general and pastors in particular are called to be guardians of the truth. The truth has been entrusted to us and we are to keep a close watch on it so that it is not stolen. The Bible contains all that is necessary for life and godliness. It alone contains the truth of God. We are guardians of this book and must not get bogged down in worldly chatter and contrary arguments. What an ending exhortation from Paul to his apprentice Timothy.

“Son, guard the truth!”
