Bible Kidz – Timothy.

Key Verse

“And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:15

Text — 2 Timothy 3:14-17


Timothy was a native of a place known as Lystra. His mother was a Jewess named Eunice, his father was a Greek. The grandmother of Timothy on his mother’s side was named Lois. During Apostle Paul’s first missionary journey to Lystra, God used him to heal a man that was crippled from birth. This miracle led to the conversion of many souls including Lois and Eunice. Both grandmother and mother then taught Timothy the word of God when he was still young.

Timothy believed in the word of God and became a good Christian.
When Apostle Paul returned to Lystra a few years later, with Silas.
Timothy was already a respected member of the Christian congregation as were his mother and grandmother. Based on the recommendation of the believers in the church at that time, Apostle Paul decided to take young Timothy with him as he traveled from city to city, preaching the gospel.

The book of 1st and 2nd Timothy were written as apostolic instructions to Timothy. He became a dependable co-laborer and defender of the faith. Timothy’s life shows that he was-
Holy and righteous
Yielded to God’s will and word.

Be a Timothy, listen to and obey the godly teachings of your parents, teachers, and pastors. Surrender your life to Jesus and serve Him all the days of your life.
