Persist in what you’ve learned

The apostle Paul always exhorted against false doctrines and good customs that we should have as good servants of Christ, and in the following verses that we will see below, we must be very careful in what way we are going to interpret it, since the Word of God is not personal interpretations. Let’s see what Paul says to Timothy:

14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:14-15 (KJV)

What does it mean to say “continue thou in the things which thou hast learned”?

We must be careful to use this title simply to strengthen cultural things that we believe in. The apostle Paul uses it under the scoop that Timothy had been taught “well” according to the Doctrine of Christ. It is like when John writes, “Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning” (1 John 2:24).

Paul was not asking Timothy to strengthen empty words taught by men, but to strengthen and abide in the Word of God, which he had been taught.

In the same way the Lord gives us the command to stay in His Word, not to stray, despite how we are looking in such a bad direction that this world is going.
