“Sacred Writings”

Blessings folk!

The Lord now gives us a command...through the Spirit through Paul to Timothy/us.

Read the following.
What is the command?
How as the command to be accomplished?

2 Timothy 3:14-17
14 You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them,
15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;
17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

The command?
Continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of…

We are to press on in the Truth of the Lord.
But, how do we know Truth?

From Paul.
From the sacred writings.

Timothy had learned from the sacred writings...from his childhood.
His mother and grandmother made certain of this.

2Ti 1:5
For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well.

The sacred writings...from Paul’s/Timothy’s perspective this would be the Old Testament...are able to give wisdom.

This wisdom from the Word leads to salvation…
Salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

There is no other way.
There is no other truth.
There is no other light.
