Strengthened in God’s Love (1 Timothy 6:3-12)

Jeff Martin, March 12, 2017
Part of the 1 Timothy series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

In Paul’s first letter to Timothy, Paul is placing a tremendous amount of pressure on Timothy. We will explore this pressure that Timothy faced and similar pressures that we face today in our lives.
Paul reminds Timothy about the remedy for this pressure, being strengthened in God’s love.
We will dig more deeply into the love that God has for us, and the hope that it brings.

1 Timothy 6:3-12

If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain. Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (ESV)
