Today's reading: 1 Timothy 4:1-5

Warnings about false teaching run throughout 1 Timothy, and we see that again here in chapter 4. Paul lets Timothy know that he should be aware of religious people or groups whose teachings are inconsistent with that of Christ because they place restrictions on certain actions and areas of life. Paul specifically points out problems concerning restrictions on eating and food, a warning that addresses false religions but also reinforces a break from Jewish law regarding clean and unclean food. He tells Timothy that if God created it, then we should receive it with thanksgiving (vs. 4-5).

How often do you think about the freedoms we have because of Christ? What does having "freedom in Christ" mean for you? What does this passage show us about the importance of consistently spending time in God's Word so that we know what God says and how He desires for us to live? Tami

1) How often do you think about the freedoms we have because of Christ?
I am afraid I do not do it enough.
2) What does having "freedom in Christ" mean for you?
Freedom in Christ means that I do not have to follow the rigid laws of the Old Testament,being so careful not to eat the wrong or unclean foods which is in today's reading. But we have freedom to chose to follow Him by obeying His Word which requires us to read it!!
3) What does this passage show us about the importance of consistently spending time in God's Word so that we know what God says and how He desires for us to live?
Tami, I believe you have answered this questions in your questions.
We need to read God's Word to know what God says and how He desires for us to live, it is our road map to follow His way.
