Everyone has a Timothy and everyone has a Paul somewhere in thier life. Someone that they are teaching and someone that is teaching them. Who is your Timothy? Someone very curious about their faith, asking a lot of questions, hungry for the what the Spirit has next for them. Who is your Paul? Someone wise and matured in their faith, able to answer the tough questions and lead you to a deeper understanding? We all have our Timothy’s and our Paul’s but how are we utlizing these gifts that God commanded us to do. Make disciples, share our faith with the next generation, bring up our children in the ways of the Lord?
Think of your Timothy and your Paul, think about those relationships, we want to encourage you to work at growing those relationships. Not only will it stretch you in your walk, but it will strengthen someone elses as you share with them how you have learned, what you have learned. Actively sharing your faith with another is also what God has commanded us to do.
If you do not have a mentor or are not someone else’s mentee, let Banner assist you in finding someone, or an opportunity to engage yourself in a activities that can produce them. Some good places to start are to become part of a small group, volunteer work in a church ministry or attend an upcoming event.
