2 Timothy 1:1-7

Paul’s letters in 1 & 2 Timothy show us the spiritual fruit of a godly parent and grandparent. Young Timothy was greatly influenced by his mother Eunice and grandmother Lois in the faith. Paul met this family while visiting Lystra and heard of Timothy’s passion for the good news (Acts 16:1-3). Timothy became a faithful minister for Jesus and was sent by Paul to the church at Ephesus to clear up some false teaching. Paul reminded Timothy to keep ablaze the gift God had given him through prayer and the laying on of hands. Timothy was to minister the gospel to the church in power, love and with sound judgement.
