Today's Scripture Guidance


2 Timothy 2:24-25

"And a servant of Jesus must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient,

in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may come to know the truth (of Jesus Christ)."


In today's Scripture..., Paul is speaking to Timothy, whom he has assigned the ministry at the church in Ephesus.  At this time, Paul had been imprisoned again in Rome, and was placed in a cold dungeon.  This was after Paul's fourth missionary journey.  Paul knew that his ability to continue the work of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through missionary was done, and that his life was about to end.  Paul had ministered the Gospel of Jesus for about 35 years.    Paul writes Timothy to encourage him to continue the ministry, and to faithfully teach the Gospel.  In our particular Scripture, Paul gives Timothy guidance on being a servant of Jesus Christ.  Our Scripture begins with..., "And a servant of Jesus must not quarrel."  A servant of Jesus is not here to argue!  The Word says do not quarrel..., "But be gentle to all, able to teach, patient."  A servant of Jesus is here to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  The Scripture says a servant of Jesus Christ is here to teach and..., "In humility correcting those who are in opposition."  A servant of Jesus is here to humbly utilize the Gospel to rebuke others, and guide them to the truth!  The Word says a servant of Jesus is here to humbly correct those who are wrong, and pray..., "If God perhaps will grant them repentance."  A servant of Jesus is here to help sinners seek forgiveness for their sins!  And finally the Word of God says that a servant of Jesus is here to humbly teach and guide others..., "So that they may come to know the truth (of Jesus Christ)."  That is why a servant of Jesus is here!  To humbly teach, to gently correct, and to guide to repentance; that others may be forgiven and come to know Jesus!  Glory to God!  The Word is giving guidance to the servants of Jesus today!  Amen.

Today..., our Scripture is speaking to Believers who are servants of Jesus today, and those who Jesus is calling to serve!  The Word is giving you the same guidance that Paul, an ultimate servant of Jesus Christ, gave to Timothy.  In our particular Scripture, Paul gives Timothy guidance on being a servant of Jesus Christ.  To be a servant of Jesus, there are certain behaviors that are expected of you.  Our Scripture begins with..., "And a servant of Jesus must not quarrel."  A servant of Jesus is not here to argue!  The greatest servant of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, was Jesus Himself!  When Jesus started His Ministry on Earth, hardly anyone alive knew who He was!  Mary, His mother knew, and Joseph, His father knew (Matthew 1:20-21).  And John the Baptist knew of Him, but did not know that Jesus was Him.  So every other person that Jesus came upon, did not know anything about Him.  So Jesus was the first Servant of Himself!  And Jesus did not quarrel!  Amen.  And Jesus was gentle to all!  Hallelujah!  Our Scripture is guiding servants of Jesus to be like Jesus!  A servant of Jesus is not here to argue!  Amen.

Today..., the Word is speaking to those who are servants of Jesus.  The Word guides us that a servant of Jesus is not here to argue. The Word says do not quarrel..., "But be gentle to all, able to teach, patient."  A servant of Jesus is here to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  A servant of Jesus must be able to teach!  To teach effectively requires a gentle and patient approach in teaching those that do not know Jesus.  Again, let's look at Jesus.  Jesus taught gently and patiently, often using relatable parables, or stories, to teach people the Gospel.  Jesus did not hit people over the head with profound repeating of the Scriptures!  Jesus did not get frustrated when He would teach..., because Jesus knew that people did not know the Scripture, or understand the Scripture.  So Jesus found ways to teach!  That is what our guidance is to the servants of Jesus today.  A servant of Jesus must be able to teach!  Amen.

Today..., our Scripture is speaking to Believers who are servants of Jesus, giving guidance to us.  A servant of Jesus is not here to argue, but must be able to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Amen.  The Scripture says a servant of Jesus Christ is here to teach and..., "In humility correcting those who are in opposition."  A servant of Jesus is here to humbly utilize the Gospel to rebuke others, and guide them to the truth!  The Scripture calls on servants of Jesus to utilize the Word of God to correct and rebuke.  When a servant of Jesus utilizes the Word to correct..., it is the Word of God that rebukes!  It is not you..., so therefore you remain humble.  You are not correcting by your own opinion, so you are not doing so with arrogance.  Utilize the Word..., and let the Word rebuke and correct.  And be humble in your approach!  But..., you must speak the truth of Jesus!  You must use the Word to correct those who are wrong, or in opposition.  Utilize the Word!  The Gospel of Jesus is the truth..., and that is what corrects!  You cannot allow false teachings, or understanding about Jesus to be said..., you must correct that!  A servant of Jesus is here to humbly utilize the Gospel to rebuke others, and guide them to the truth!  Amen.

Today..., the Word is speaking to those who are servants of Jesus, or who are being called to serve Jesus.  And the Word is giving guidance to us.  A servant of Jesus is not here to argue!  A servant of Jesus must be able to teach!  A servant of Jesus is here to humbly utilize the Gospel to rebuke others, and guide them to the truth!   The Word says a servant of Jesus is here to humbly correct those who are wrong, and pray..., "If God perhaps will grant them repentance."  A servant of Jesus is here to help sinners seek forgiveness for their sins!  Just as Jesus did..., a servant of Jesus is to seek out those who are sinners, and teach them that there is a way to forgiveness.  That way is Jesus!  We know that, but sinners who do not know Jesus..., do not know that!  That is why a servant of Jesus must be able to teach!  We must teach others that there is a way that they can be forgiven.  We not only need to teach them that there is a way to repent their sins, we need to pray for them also that God will grant them forgiveness!  We need to pray for those that we teach, that they may understand, and repent through Jesus..., so that God will forgive them of their sins.  A non-Believer must know that their journey to Jesus must go through their repentance of sins.  A servant of Jesus is here to help sinners seek forgiveness for their sins!  Amen.

Today..., our Scripture is encouraging Believers by giving us guidance to be a servant of Jesus.  Hallelujah!  A servant of Jesus is not here to argue, but must be able to teach.  A servant of Jesus is here to humbly utilize the Gospel to correct and guide others to the truth of Jesus, and to help sinners seek forgiveness of their sins!  Amen.  And finally the Word of God says that a servant of Jesus is here to humbly teach and guide others..., "So that they may come to know the truth (of Jesus Christ)."  That is why a servant of Jesus is here!  Hallelujah!  That is the ultimate goal of all servants of Jesus.  We are servants of Jesus so people will come to know the truth of Jesus Christ..., our Lord and Savior!  That is why a servant of Jesus is here!  Amen.

Today.., the Word is speaking to those Believers who are servants of Jesus, or those who are being called to be servants of Jesus.  Our Scripture is giving us the same guidance that Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ..., gave to Timothy, a servant of Jesus.  The Word guides us that a servant of Jesus is not here to argue..., but must be able to teach!  A servant of Jesus must be humble and utilize the Gospel to correct and guide others to the truth of Jesus.  Amen.  A servant of Jesus is here to help sinners seek forgiveness from God through Jesus..., and all this is done by servants of Jesus so that others may come to know the truth of Jesus!  That is why a servant of Jesus is here!  Glory hallelujah!  To humbly teach, to gently correct, and to guide to repentance; that others may be forgiven and come to know Jesus!  Glory to God!  The Word is giving guidance to the servants of Jesus today!  Amen.

YOU ARE A CHILD OF CHRIST!!!
