This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 0 From The Book of 1 Timothy Is: The
1 Timothy was Paul’s dearly loved companion
and helper whom he first found at Lystra (Acts 16:1-3) and ever afterwards
regarded as a son (1Tim.1:2, 18; 2 Tim. 1:2; 2:1) He was with Paul on his
missionary journeys and during his imprisonment in Rome (col. 1:1) and was sent
by Paul from time to time on important missions (1 Thes. 3:1-6; 1 Cor. 4: 17;
16:10, 11; Phil. 2:19) At this time he had been left at Ephesus to check
tendencies to false teaching (1 Tim. 1:3, 4) and to superintend the affairs of
the church as the apostle’s representative (1 Tim. 3:14, 15). The letter belongs to the last period of
Paul’s life, between his first and second imprisonments’ in Rome.
Paul’s main purpose in writing was to guide
and encourage Timothy in his work. The letter is full of practical advice
concerning church affairs and the preservation of purity of life and doctrine.
It exhorts the worker for God to be uncompromising in his loyalty and devotion
to his duty.
