ADORNED PROPERLY   1Timothy 2:8-10             Print this Bible Study

STIMULATE

** In verse seven from our last study together, Paul linked faith with truth, do you recall why?

Faith in just any form of religion or philosophy of men will only lead to destruction.
Truth, without faith, will only condemn men to eternal judgment.

Salvation comes about when a fallen sinner places his faith in Jesus Christ who brought us grace and truth. cf. John 1:17

** From verse five of that study, what was at the heart of Paul’s message which boldly confronted the demonic doctrine and false teachers of his day?

“For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

** What two roles did we see the apostle Paul faithfully fulfill in that passage?

The fact that he was an “Appointed Preacher” and an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ.

** Did you find yourself wanting to identify with those appointments and even follow in Paul’s footsteps as we walk with the Lord each day?

Absolutely - We are to herald the saving gospel of Christ as He sends us to “all men” living in darkness.

MOTIVATE

** Up to this point in his epistle, Paul has described to Timothy the seriousness of the situation there in Ephesus. Timothy was to be an example by correcting the doctrinal error around him and by making an evangelistic prayer life on behalf of “all men” his first priority. With all of that said, Paul is now going to get very practical in his instruction to men and women of the church. How are we to live within the context of the church setting? If we hope to live for the glory of Christ, how can we be “Adorned Properly” during our times of corporate worship? For the answer, let’s read our passage together.
