St Timothy, Pastor and Confessor

Sermon for the feast of St. Timothy, Pastor and Confessor, Wednesday, January 24, 2024

Today we celebrate and give thanks for the faith, confession, preaching, and service of our father in the faith, St. Timothy. This young man was chosen by Paul to replace his fellow slave Barnabas because of the great report of those Christian men living in Lystra and Iconium. This faith was not of his own doing or his own creation but it was the gift of those who came before him and suffered the things of a Christian life to deposit to Timothy the greatest gift given to man. Specifically, this was the gift of his grandmother Lois and his mother Eunice who had accepted the revelation of Jesus Christ and become followers of the Way, teaching Timothy likewise.
