1 Timothy 4:12
Proverbs 3:1-5 (MSG)
Don’t Assume You Know It All 3 1-2[Good friend, don’t forget all I’ve taught you; take to heart my commands. They’ll help you live a long, long time, ] a long life lived full and well.[ ] [ ] 3-4Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty.[ ] Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. Earn a reputation for living well[ ] in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people.[ ] [ ] 5-12Trust God from the bottom of your heart;[ ] don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;[ ] he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all.[ ] Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health,[ ] your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own;[ ] give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst,[ ] your wine vats will brim over. But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;[ ] don’t sulk under his loving correction. It’s the child he loves that God corrects;[ ] a father’s delight is behind all this.
1 Timothy 4:12
1 Timothy 4:1-15 (MSG)
1-5[The Spirit makes it clear that as time goes on, some are going to give up on the faith and chase after demonic illusions put forth by professional liars. These liars have lied so well and for so long that they’ve lost their capacity for truth. They will tell you not to get married. They’ll tell you not to eat this or that food—perfectly good food God created to be eaten heartily and with thanksgiving by believers who know better! Everything God created is good, and to be received with thanks. Nothing is to be sneered at and thrown out. God’s Word and our prayers make every item in creation holy.] 6-10[You’ve been raised on the Message of the faith and have followed sound teaching. Now pass on this counsel to the followers of Jesus there, and you’ll be a good servant of Jesus. Stay clear of silly stories that get dressed up as religion. Exercise daily in God—no spiritual flabbiness, please! Workouts in the gymnasium are useful, but a disciplined life in God is far more so, making you fit both today and forever. You can count on this. Take it to heart. This is why we’ve thrown ourselves into this venture so totally. We’re banking on the living God, Savior of all men and women, especially believers.] 11-14[Get the word out. Teach all these things. And don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity. Stay at your post reading Scripture, giving counsel, teaching. And that special gift of ministry you were given when the leaders of the church laid hands on you and prayed—keep that dusted off and in use.] 15-16[Cultivate these things. Immerse yourself in them. The people will all see you mature right before their eyes! Keep a firm grasp on both your character and your teaching. Don’t be diverted. Just keep at it. Both you and those who hear you will experience salvation.]
For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Romans 6:14
The word “sin” there is a noun, you can put staten shall not have dominion over you, sickness shall not have dominion over you, poverty shall not have dominion over you, when you are not under law but under grace.
You can not be under water and not be wet anymore then you can be under grace and not be holy - Joseph Prince
