“You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:1-2).
As followers of Jesus, we are expected to be multipliers of the faith. Four generations of believers are represented in today’s focal passage. Paul is writing to Timothy, a young man he has brought to faith in Christ. Timothy is challenged to invest his life and faith into others who, likewise, will reach out to those who cross their life’s path. To receive the faith is a privilege; to transmit the faith is a responsibility.
