“Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus” – 2 Tim. 1:13
The end was near for Paul. This was to be his last letter and he knew it. So what did he write on such an important occasion?
Getting fresh new revelation? Getting new private messages from God? Looking for signs and reading tea leaves? No!
Retain the standard of sound doctrine! Be a faithful guardian of the truth! Be a steward of the sound words presented in the Bible.
And do so in faith and love which originate from Christ Jesus.
This mandate goes for all of us.
