2 Tim 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. NKJV
2 Tim 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. NKJV
If we read the passages above in context we see Paul is instructing Timothy to watch out for false teachers. He is admonishing him to pay attention to the Scriptures and to make sure what he is believing and what he is teaching is founded on Scripture. Doing this causes Christians to purge themselves of the world and lies of the enemy. This process causes us to develop into vessels that are, “sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”
Here at Faith Family Church, we are committed to helping believers develop into disciples. Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 that we were to make disciples of all nations. God has designed that every believer grows to the place where they are a vessel for honor.
This month will be taught by Rick Lavold and is titled “Theology .1”
Theology is best described as the study of the nature of God as revealed in the Word of God. This month, we will be looking at 4 foundational truths relating to God’s nature and our redemption.
Part 4 – Redemption actually refers to being bought out of slavery for a price. Christ redeemed us with His most precious commodity, His blood, but redeemed for what? For a calling that He has placed in your life that must be walked out in faith, pressing on to the mark of the high calling in Christ.
