“Last Days” living

1 Timothy 4:7 (NIV): Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.

I Timothy 4 delivers stern warnings. They are crucial for our times. For Timothy it was vital to pay attention.

The key is this: godliness IS attainable. It isn’t some distant hope. It is necessary.

“Grace isn’t opposed to effort. It’s opposed to earning.” — Dallas Willard

It is time we set the example in all matters. In speech. In conduct. In discipline.

Paul is clear for Timothy: stick to the basics of worship. Public reading of Scripture, exhortation, and teaching. Do life together… and do it WELL together.

We must keep a close eye on our own habits. We must immerse ourselves in the good work. Too much is at risk in this time to live any other way.
