1Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
Stay on message is what I get from this verse. It is so easy to get caught up in wasted conversations. We have the gospel committed to our trust. We do not need to get off message and discuss things that are not of eternal value.
As missionaries travel to the other side of the world they are tempted to try and change the political situation or something else that simply is not in their job description. Too many Christians in the USA are more politically in tune than they are spiritually in tune.
Somehow we love Jesus and the Word of God but we can easily be moved off message. We will get into political arguments. We will waste time discussing things that will not make an eternal difference.
We discuss sports stars more than we do the Saviour. We discuss the news and weather before we will talk about Jesus.
Today the message for all of us is-Stay on message. You have a purpose. You have a person. Talk about Him and truth and don’t get caught up in things of lesser value.
