Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith. Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.
I Timothy 1:18-20
- Have you ever been hit by an unexpected storm literally or figuratively? Share. How did you get through it?
- Anchors are dropped to keep a boat in place or in the proper position. What are some things that people are anchored to today? Who should be our ultimate anchor? Did you know that God has a purpose for your life? Explain your purpose.
- What did Paul tell Timothy to do to keep his faith from being shipwrecked? What does it mean to “fight the good fight?” Who or what are we fighting?
- What can you do to hold onto your faith? Paul not only said for Timothy to hold on to faith but to have a good conscience. What can you do to have a good or clear conscience?
