In our little series on 2 Timothy 3:10-17, weâ€™ve seen Scriptureâ€™s saving power, its final authority, and its complete sufficiency. Second Timothy 4:1 does not change Paulâ€™s focus on the Word. Instead, he builds on everything heâ€™s already said to demand a very practical application from Timothy. His pointed charge still has deep ramifications for us today. Because the Word saves, is authoritative and is sufficient, the Word should be preached.
