But you, Timothy, are a man of God; so run from all these evil things.
Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance,
and gentleness. Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the
eternal life to which God has called you, which you have declared so well
before many witnesses. And I charge you before God, who gives life to all,
and before Christ Jesus, who gave a good testimony before Pontius Pilate,
that you obey this command without wavering. Then no one can find fault
with you from now until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. For,
At just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the
blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all
lords. He alone can never die, and he lives in light so brilliant that no
human can approach him. No human eye has ever seen him, nor ever
will. All honor and power to him forever! Amen.
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust
in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who
richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money
to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in
need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be
storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they
may experience true life.
Timothy, guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish
discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge.
Some people have wandered from the faith by following such foolishness.
May God’s grace be with you all.
