Keep A Firm Grasp On Your Character And Teaching

11-13 Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity. Stay at your post reading Scripture, giving counsel, teaching.

15-16 Cultivate these things. Immerse yourself in them. The people will all see you mature right before their eyes! Keep a firm grasp on both your character and your teaching. Don’t be diverted. Just keep at it. Both you and those who hear you will experience salvation.

1 Timothy 4:11-13,15-16

The Message Version (MSG)


11-13 你要用言語、行為、愛心、信心和正直,以自己生命的見證去教導信徒。要持守你在宣讀聖經、輔導及教學上的職責。

15-16 在這幾方面操練自己,讓自己浸淫其中,這樣眾人就會看見你在他們面前成長。你要留心自己的品格和教導,不要偏離,要謹慎自守。

— 提摩太前書四11-13、15-16
