After Paul clarifies what Timothy is to confront in the false teachers, he then qualifies Timothy’s ability for such confrontation. Timothy was able to lovingly confront false teaching because he was trained in the sound teaching of the Spirit. If Timothy weren’t trained in truth, he would have confronted out of speculation and division. Therefore, through Paul’s writing, God’s invitation for all of us is to be a people trained and devoted to God’s truth because it is valuable for all times in all things. Jesus is worth devoting our all to because He is the only living Savior able to save anyone who puts their hope in Him.
