For Wednesday March 8 – Preparing For Eternity

Many verses in 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus speak about the ultimate goal of the church: helping as many as possible  secure eternal salvation in heaven.  Consider what some of these texts say about salvation.

1 Timothy 4:8

1/ What two “lives” does 1 Timothy 4:8 identify?

2/ What is the promise of the life which now is?

3/ What is the promise of that which is to come?

4/ How would you define godliness as used in this text?


1 Timothy 2:3-6

1/ What does this verse suggest about God’s feelings for mankind?

2/ For whom did Jesus die?

3/ What does this verse say that points to our responsibility?


2 Timothy 3:14-15

1/ What role do the scriptures play in our salvation?



1 Timothy 4:16

1/ Wasn’t Timothy already saved?

2/ Is there a sense in which we save ourselves?

3/ What does this verse say we must do?


Titus 3:3-7

1/ “Not by works of righteousness which we have done”. Does this mean we don’t do anything? What is another possible meaning?

2/ We are saved by His mercy, through the washing of regeneration.   What does the washing of regeneration refer to?
