Re:Verse passage – 2 Timothy 3:14-17(day five)  “You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them,”.   One of the greatest privileges in my days of youth ministry, was “partnering” with volunteers, parents, and grandparents to disciple teenagers. Such a wise strategy found in the scriptures- ministers, mentors, parents, and grandparents all speaking the truth of scripture into the minds and hearts of children and youth. I love how Paul describes Timothy’s faith- “things you have become convinced of”. Preaching, teaching, family devotions, bedtime prayers – all used by the Spirit to convince a young heart and mind of the purpose and power of the scriptures. Salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  So, who are you talking to?  Who is talking to you? We can be used to convince. We still need to be convinced.

One thought on “Who”

  1. Grear word Pastor Scott. Your post reminds me that God has given us the wonderful gift of a succession model. Intellectual capital is a term often used in the marketplace. Intellectual capital is the knowledge that leaders and followers bring and take into and away from an organization. Proactive HR departments devote a great number of resources to ensure this intellectual capital is preserved by documenting processes to ensure continuity of organizational goals and outcomes. This scripture reminds me that we have been given the same responsibility, as believers, to share the blood-bought “gospel capital” across generations for the continuity of our missional goals and outcomes (Matthew 28:19). Nothing is new under the sun. God is and has always been in control and even more important offers wisdom and knowledge to all who ask (James 1:5). We must be about sharing this message of Jesus Christ across all generations. Oh, how blessed is the church that recognizes the importance and gift of multigenerational intellectual and spiritual capital.
