THE DOCTRINE OF FAITH

2018 – SUNDAY 10 JUNE

THE DOCTRINE OF FAITH

Paul warns his son in the faith Timothy – to commit to his doctrine of faith in Christ.

1 Timothy 1:3
As I urged you when I went into Macedonia—remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine,

1 Timothy 1:4
“nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith.”
ANY OTHER DOCTRINE CAUSES…
DISPUTES
DOCTRINE OF FAITH CAUSES….
EDIFICATION IN FAITH

1 Timothy 1:5
“Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith,”

THE PURPOSE OF THIS DOCTRINE IS LOVE

1. FROM A PURE HEART
2. FROM A GOOD CONSCIENCE
3. FROM SINCERE FAITH

Paul forcefully commands Timothy to keep the main thing – the main main thing.
The Christian life is a life of love.
As God so loved – you are to so love one another.

It seems as though the more you commit to the doctrine of faith – the more it will produce a life of love.
The more you live a life of love – the more it…
Purify your heart
Keep your conscience clear
Strengthen you in your faith

A NEW DOCTRINE I GIVE TO YOU
LOVE GOD
LOVE PEOPLE
LOVE LIFE
