Legacy of Faith

2 Timothy 1:3-7

Rev. Theresa Andrews

1.First, Paul shows us in this passage that we can have a legacy of faith.

-Mothers, here we see that we can pass on our sincere faith because God has done it in the life of Timothy.

-We also notice that Paul recognizes Timothy’s sincere faith.

-Then, Paul tells us how Timothy’s mother and grandmother passed on their faith to Timothy.


-Then, Timothy’s mother and grandmother were able to be great Christian examples for him since they had a strong Christian walk.


- Later, Paul also tells us in this letter that Timothy’s grandmother and mother taught Timothy the Holy Scriptures when he was young.



2. The second critical point of this passage is that Paul shows us as mothers that in order to pass on our faith, we must have a consistent prayer life.


-Mothers, I notice that this passage also teaches us that we can pray that God will send spiritual parents for our children.
-We can ask God to supply us with resources. God says you have not because you ask not.
-We can trust that God is concerned about our children and hears our intercession for them.



3. Lastly, Mothers to leave a legacy of faith, we must be strong and courageous.


-Paul says in verse 7, “For God hath not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

-Be strong and courageous

-Mothers, we must evangelize first in our homes.
