Timothy

Hey guys. We apologize for not having posted in over a week. We've been crazy busy with things, but hopefully, we'll stay on a somewhat regular posting schedule. I'm gonna wrap this short little series up with a post about Timothy.
If you know your books of the Bible, you know that Timothy has two books in the New Testament. In 1 Timothy, there's a verse that really inspired this series in the first place. You'll find that verse over on the side of the page with a few other memory verses, but I'll also write it in here. 1 Timothy 4:12 says, "Do not let others look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity." This one verse is telling all the kids, teens, and young adults out there that just because you're not as old as some other Christians, doesn't mean you can't make a difference. Timothy was a sort of apprentice to Paul, one of the greatest missionaries to ever live. If you read Timothy's story, you'll find out ever since Timothy was a boy, he studied the Scriptures and was very knowledgeable. He accompanied Paul to several places to help spread the Gospel.
God used a young man to spread His Word. And guess what! God is still using young people to spread His Word. That's what we're doing here. That's what is being done through student mission trips all over the world. Our generation is making a big impact. Let's make sure that the world knows that this generation of Christians is ready to go out and make a difference for Christ.

In Christ's love,
Sarah

At the time that the letter was written, Timothy was a pastor in a church, and 1st Tim 4:12 was written because people there were disrespectful of him.

...just your daily piece of Bible trivia!. :D

I just found the blog, via the Rebelution Forums, and I am loving it! I LOVE your quote on the top-right! It amazes me daily how many young Christian men and women (I don't use "teenagers") God has inspired to blog! The work that God is doing in this world through the Rebelution is incredible!

Thanks for your bit of info trey! :) And I know I'm speaking for both of us when I say that it is quite amazing what God is doing through young people.
