1 Timothy 6:17-21 (1 Timothy 6:17-21)Michael Glenn, 28th July 2019
Part of the 1 Timothy series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Paul concludes his letter with an admonition to the Christians who are rich. They must be generous and do good. They will in this way lay a firm foundation for heaven. Timothy must guard the apostolic faith. It is precious and people can be drawn away by other ideas.

1 Timothy 6:17–21 (Listen)
17 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, 19 thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
20 O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” 21 for by professing it some have swerved from the faith.
Grace be with you.
