1 Timothy 1:18 this charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare

Now granted Timothy had a big job ahead of him. He was being entrusted with the church at Ephesus, which is big enough but he was helping to start Christianity. This was so new and different in so many aspects; no one had ever seen or heard of it before. It was up to Timothy to tell others about it. Our jobs are a bit different; many have heard the name of Christ, especially in this area where we live. Yet, isn’t it the same gospel that we are entrusted with. Isn’t it the same Holy God that we are to tell others about? Yes it is. To entrust means to “charge with responsibility”; we are responsible with the gospel. We are responsible in how we handle it, how we tell others about it, how we use it.
