Topic: Follow (hold) the Pattern of Sound Words
2 Timothy 1:13-18; Titus 1:9-11; 2 Timothy 3:14-17.
Store Scripture: Revelation 3:3. BBE version. Keep in mind then, the teaching which was given to you, and be ruled by it and have a change of heart. If then you do not keep watch, I will come like a thief, and you will have no knowledge (never know) of the hour when I will come on you.
It’s often said that who you follow may likely determine how you end up either successfully or in failure. No wonder scriptures tells us in Proverbs 22:29. ISV version. “Do you see a man skilled (expert) in his work? He will work for kings, not unimportant people, (mere men)”. Also our Lord warned in John 12:26. Watch those you follow and likewise those following you if you wish to make a success of your ministry career, business. Furthermore, Jesus said in John 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”. While apostle Paul was recounting his conversion account before king Agrippa, Acts 26:12-23. Please notice what God told him in V16 NET version “But rise, get up and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this reason, to designate (make) you in advance as a servant and witness to the things you have seen and to the things in which I will appear to you”. It’s clearly obvious that God’s presence was with Paul throughout his calling and in his followership of Christ. Then Paul himself likewise told his own disciples and fellow workers in 1 Corinthians 11:1. KJVLite version. Be ye followers of me, even as am also of Christ. It’s safely to say, be wise enough to know and follow people working in God’s fear and sound biblical counsel.
