Instruct the Brethren #437

6  If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed. 7  But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. (1 Timothy 4:6-7)

Just as food nourishes the body, the “words of faith” nourish the soul. Jesus has “the words of eternal life”, therefore, we must partake of His word to have eternal life (Jno. 6:68, 57-58, 63). The “good minister of Jesus Christ” carefully follows “the good doctrine” of Christ and teaches it to his brethren. (What is your preacher teaching you: Psychology, sociology or the gospel?) Godliness is produced by learning the word of God and by disciplining yourself by its precepts. Fully reject the irreverent, silly myths of men. False doctrine always deceives and leaves you spiritually deficient.
