SINCERITY, IN CHRISTIAN LIVING

August 4, 2016

Thursday

 

1 Timothy 1:5

 

But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.

 

 

LESSON

 

The ultimate aim of a Bible teacher should not be to generate debate and controversy. It should be to cultivate the lives of his or her students, so that they manifest “love” in their daily living. This love should spring from “a pure heart,” “a good conscience” void of shame, and a genuine trust in God. A good conscience, then, is nothing but inward integrity of heart.

Paul grew to love Timothy along with Timothy’s grandmother and mother. Paul spent time further training and molding Timothy and encouraging him along with Eunice and Lois. Timothy is just a very young man but he grows under all this good teaching. How much do we love our brothers and sisters in Christ? Do we love them enough to nurture them as Paul nurtured Timothy, so they can grow?
