1 Timothy 1:18-20, The Charge to Timothy Pt. 2: Fight the Good Fight

The first chapter of 1 Timothy began with a charge Paul gave to Timothy to set things in order in the churches in Ephesus 1:3-7). False teachers needed to be silenced and corrected. In verses 8-17, Paul 1) identified and confronted an aspect of the error being taught and 2) explained the power and glory of the true gospel. In today’s text 1:18-20), Paul concludes his charge to Timothy, calling him to “fight the good fight.”
