1 Timothy 5 – Perscriptions – Part 2

October 13, 2013

in 1 Timothy Study

The last time we were looking at the 4th chapter where we are told there is a prescription to follow when we come to our Lord. Salvation is not based upon good works as the false teachers say but rather salvation is based on the righteousness which belongs to Christ.

Now in chapter 5 another prescription is given. This time it is not salvation that is in view but rather it is our relationships within the church, the family of God that concern The Holy Spirit. If we believe Jesus’ own words here about the most important command, then to love God is foremost, to love your neighbor follows closely behind. That is the prescription here in 1 Timothy 5. We are to love each other!
