Today's Scripture: 2 Timothy 1:6-14
Along with Titus, Paul’s letters to Timothy form what are known as the Pastoral Letters. Timothy (who would serve the church in Ephesus) and Titus (who led the congregations on the island of Crete) were two of Paul’s numerous protégés that he’d mentored for spiritual service. As such, Paul’s letters to them are filled with instruction and encouragement on how to deal with situations in the local church. These situations range from qualifications for leaders to [deal] with false teachers to personal example and conduct. Even while imprisoned and facing death, the apostle continued to train his students.
