Scripture of the Day - June 1, 2012

2 Timothy 1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
14 That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

Paul is telling Timothy to continue to follow the pattern of the sound teaching Paul had taught him and to keep safe through the Holy Spirit the great treasure that was entrusted to him. False teachers had infiltrated the church and were turning against Paul and the gospel. Not only was the church being shaken, but Paul was now a prisoner in Rome and he was concerned for Timothy. He encouraged Timothy to stand firm against the ridicule and persecution of the false teachers and to remain faithful to Christ.
We live in a world that is riddled with false teachers who mock and fight against believers of the truth. They have watered down the Word of God claiming much of it is not relevant today...baptism in Jesus' name...receiving the Holy Spirit (Ghost) was for back then they say. All you have to do now is confess that Jesus is your 'personal Lord and Savior' and you are 'saved'. I get a sense of 'Jesus is my personal valet' when I hear that! I have news for those people...He is not your savior if you are not going to do what He says to be saved. And that's the bottom line so hold fast to what Jesus taught and hold fast to the pattern the apostles set. Don't be intimidated by false teachers and don't be swayed by their smooth talk.
