You are a good servant of Christ Jesus when you point these things out to our brothers and sisters. Then you will be nourished by the words of the Christian faith and the excellent teachings which you have followed closely.
Don't have anything to do with godless myths that old women like to tell. Rather, train yourself to live a godly life.
Training the body helps a little, but godly living helps in every way. Godly living has the promise of life now and in the world to come.
This is a statement that can be trusted and deserves complete acceptance.
Certainly, we work hard and struggle to live a godly life, because we place our confidence in the living God. He is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe.
Insist on these things and teach them.
Don't let anyone look down on you for being young. Instead, make your speech, behavior, love, faith, and purity an example for other believers.
Until I get there, concentrate on reading [Scripture] in worship, giving encouraging messages, and teaching people.
Don't neglect the gift which you received through prophecy when the spiritual leaders placed their hands on you [to ordain you].
Practice these things. Devote your life to them so that everyone can see your progress.
Focus on your life and your teaching. Continue to do what I've told you. If you do this, you will save yourself and those who hear you.
