Verse of the Day (September 4, 2020) #BMSeminary – {What you heard from me} Timothy had been Paul’s ministry partner for over a decade. {pattern of sound teaching} See Rom 6:17. This is more than information; it is enlivened “with faith and love in Christ Jesus,” which could describe either how Timothy should “keep” Paul’s teaching or how he had heard and received it over the years. {Guard} The same word is used of God’s protection in v. 12. {the good deposit} The gospel message he received. {entrusted} See 2:2; 1 Tim 6:20. {with the help of} The Spirit is the decisive agent in what Timothy cannot accomplish on his own. {Spirit who lives in us} In the same way that faith (see v. 5) and the word about Christ (Col 3:16) are alive in believers, God himself by the Spirit indwells his people. He is “in” each one personally and connects them corporately to Christ, making the many into one (1 Cor 12:13-14). [Zondervan Study Bible]
