As we look at the charge that Paul gives to Timothy as a minister of the Gospel, we see four main points:

  • The solemnity of this charge: the pastor will be judged for how he does the work of the ministry 
  • The pressing urgency of this charge 
  • Paul’s 8 exhortations to Timothy 
  • Paul’s encouragement to Timothy

This charge is not only for the pastor. All of God’s people have gifts and responsibilities that they will have to give an account of, all are to do the work of evangelism and all are to long for and look for the Lord’s coming.
