“Hold fast to the pattern of sound words which you heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit through the Holy Spirit who lives in us.” 2 Timothy 1:13-14 Timothy had been with Paul day in and day out for several years. He knew Paul. He had been able to observe him in just about every kind of situation you could imagine. In that time he saw, and heard Paul consistently speak ‘sound words’. Paul was filled with the Holy Spirit Who, incidentally, makes all the difference in any situation. Paul’s words were seasoned with grace.
