As Paul prepared for death, he wanted to ensure that Timothy held tight to the faith. Echoing the apostle, Alistair Begg implores us to “guard the good deposit” and follow the pattern of sound teaching exemplified by Paul. Faithfulness to God’s Word requires diligence, and if we do not believe well, we will not live well. We live in a confused culture and a compromised church, so we must hold to our convictions by faith and the love of Jesus.
13Follow the pattern of the sound4 words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
