Lesson: A Charge From Spiritual Father To Spiritual Son
Date: June 16, 2019
1 Timothy 1:1–10
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; 2 Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord. 3 As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. 5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; 7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. 8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
1 Timothy 4:14, 2 Kings 2:12, 1 Corinthians 4:17, Proverbs 2:1-3, 1 Peter 1:23, Titus 1:4, Galatians 4:19, 1 Corinthians 9:1, 2 Kings 6:21
Questions To Consider:
1. If Paul called Timothy son, and many other prophets and Apostles referred to themselves as father and to the body of Christ as son and daughters, then why did Jesus say call no man father (Matt 23:9)?
2. Is there a difference between a teacher and a spiritual father? If so, what is it?
3. What is charity out of a pure heart, a good conscience, and faith unfeigned.
Why is it so important to a Father for the son or daughter to take heed to their Words?
