Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
– 2 Timothy 4:2
The previous chapter ended with the great truth that the Scriptures are inspired of God and useful for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness. Here the thought continues as Paul urges Timothy to “Preach the word!” And then to use the scriptures to patiently convince, rebuke, exhort and teach. This is the call and task of the pastor/preacher.
