πŸ‘‘ God’s Word To Us

In charging Timothy to β€œpreach the Word,” the Apostle does not mean, as some have supposed, that the pastor should draw his sermon material equally from all parts of the Bible. True, β€œall Scripture” is given so that the β€œman of God” may be fully equipped for his ministry. But in this same letter the Apostle Paul indicates that the Scriptures must be β€œrightly divided” (II Tim.Β 2:15) and that his own God-given message is the Word of God in particular for the present dispensation of grace (See II Tim. 1:7-14; 2:7-9). Thus the Apostle declares by inspiration that believers are established by β€œmy gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery” (Rom.Β 16:25).

How often the Apostle insists that his message is the Word of God! To the Thessalonian believers he writes with joy:

β€œFor this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the Word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God…” (I Thes.Β 2:13).

Thus the Apostle writes to Timothy, in this his last letter:

β€œHold fast the form of sound words which thou hast heard of me…” (II Tim.Β 1:13).

β€œAnd the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men…” (II Tim.Β 2:2).

β€œRemember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel” (II Tim.Β 2:8).

The charge to β€œpreach the Word,” therefore, refers to β€œall Scripture” in general, but to Paul’s God-given message in particular. This is obvious, for it is in urging Timothy to faithfully carry on in his place that the Apostle charges him to β€œpreach the Word.” source

Bible Verse for 12/26/19

Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. — Luke 2:28-32
