Weekly Pursuit – Week 3 of May

2 Tim. 2:1-2 “You therefore, my child, be empowered in the grace which is in Christ Jesus; and the things which you have heard from me through many witnesses, these commit to faithful men, who will be competent to teach others also.”




The subject of 2 Timothy is inoculation against the decline of the church. [There are] five specific titles given to the inoculator in 2:1-15. Paul regarded Timothy and his other co-workers as those who should be teachers, soldiers, contenders, farmers, and workmen. Based upon what he has written to Timothy [in chapter 1], Paul now goes on to encourage him to be empowered in the grace which is in Christ Jesus. Paul did not charge Timothy here to be empowered in knowledge or in gifts. He charged him to be empowered in grace. This grace is God’s provision in life given to us that we may live out His purpose.


Paul realized that Timothy had received a good deposit, that he had been taught and nourished with the riches of grace. Therefore, he charged Timothy to commit these things to others who would be faithful and competent to carry on the same ministry. This indicates that more than one person is needed to carry on the riches of God’s New Testament economy. My hope is that through all these Life-study messages thousands of saints in the Lord’s recovery will receive a good deposit of the riches of grace concerning God’s New Testament economy. Then those who have received these riches will be able to commit these things to others. Imagine what the situation would be if the Lord had ten thousand saints filled with His good deposit, spreading the riches of His economy throughout the earth. No doubt, this would hasten the time of His glorious appearing. (Life-study of 2 Timothy, msg. 3)
