Paul’s Charge Epilogue

Paul’s Charge EpilogueYesterday I suggested that you look for all the imperatives in 2 Timothy 2:14 – 26.  How did it go?

These are the ones I found:
  • 2:15 - Be Diligent (accurately handling – a participle, participles take the force of the main verb which is imperative thus this receives the force of the imperative)
  • 2:16 – Avoid
  • 2:19 – Abstain
  • 2:22 – Flee, Pursue
  • 2:23 – Refuse
What do these commands to Timothy bring to mind?

I will share my thoughts tomorrow.


  1. These imperatives call us to be proactive. God has done His part by giving us His indwelling Spirit and His Word. Our part is to be proactive (be diligent, avoid, abstain, flee, pursue, refuse, etc...) He won't do those things for us, they are our responsibility. Just my take on it...
