Let us heed these solemn exhortations. Timothy was "nourished up" in the word he
taught. He was to train himself with a view to godliness. He was to be thankful for the
mercies of God's providence granted for the "life that now is", but was to be far more
concerned for that "special salvation" which included the "life to come". Lastly he was
to be a type, a pattern, an example to believers, so that the doctrine that he taught should
be expressed and impressed with his own life, and be seen in string contrast with these
ministers of darkness, whose teaching was hypocritical, and whose consciences were
seared as with a hot iron.
