Christian Devotional – May 19, 2019

Study, do, share. We’ve been focused on those three words all year and here is another verse that clearly shows the relationship between the three. Read 1 Timothy 4:6.

In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following.
1 TIMOTHY 4:6 NASB

Timothy was to be constantly nourished on the words of faith and sound doctrine. His study should include these all the time for these are the things that he needs in order to grow and stay grounded in truth. He has to continue to study.

The phrase “which you have been following” is a perfect example of Timothy’s call to do what he has been studying. If he was not actively doing all that he has been learning, then Paul would never have been able to use that phrase.

Share. The very first part of the verse indicates that he is to point these things out to the brethren. He is to share with them what he has learned and what he, himself, is doing.

Study, do, share. Are we continuing to focus on the importance of all 3 of these in our lives and daily walk? Here we see again this called out to challenge us.
