Fight the good fight, holding on to the faith and a good conscience. —1 Timothy 1:18–19

When you enter Moody Bible Institute, you’ll see these words carved into the stone archway: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” This encouraging and challenging Bible verse, 2 Timothy 2:15, has been Moody’s motto since its founding. It also encapsulates Paul’s teaching in his letters to Timothy—our study in Today in the Word this month.

Paul, a veteran missionary, writes to his young son in the faith, Timothy. He tackles important topics such as false doctrines and false teachers in the church, how to fight for one’s faith and how to worship, the role of women and qualifications for leaders, how to make a disciple and how to be one. These topics are still relevant, and even controversial, today. As we journey through 1 and 2 Timothy, we pray this study will:

  • Increase our desire to be diligent students of the Bible
  • Give us strength to live a godly life, even in the midst of trying circumstances
  • Help us ground all ministry in Scripture and gospel proclamation
  • Keep us focused on God’s calling

Thank you for your prayers and financial partnership with the ministry of Moody and Today in the Word. Your faithful support makes this devotional Bible study possible.
