Today’s passage is 2 Timothy 2:14-26. Let’s go!
2 Timothy 2:20-21 (NIV)
20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble.
21 If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
On verses 14-26: The background behind these verses is that Timothy is still dealing with the threat of false teaching influencing his church. Individuals like Hymenaeus and Philetus were teaching that the resurrection “had already happened” (v18).
