Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 1:5


1:5 Whereas the end of the commandment - of the whole Christian institution. Is love - And this was particularly the end of the commandment which Timotheus was to enforce at Ephesus, #1Tim 1:3|,18. The foundation is faith; the end, love. But this can only subsist in an heart purified by faith, and is always attended with a good conscience.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 1:5


1Ti 1:5 The end of the commandment is charity. The purpose of "the charge" (Revised Version) entrusted to you is love. See 1Ti 1:3. You must show these teachers that instead of teaching foolish fables they must inculcate love. The three things essential to a pure and holy love are: (1) A pure heart; (2) a good conscience; and (3) sincere faith.

    Galatians 2:7-8 7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter 8 For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles: Paul had a mission from Jesus himself to reach out to Gentiles and Peter to reach out to Jews.
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Paul is telling us who he was and not who he is after he got saved.

    1st Timothy 1:[12] And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
    [13] Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

    1 Timothy 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope. How important is Paul to us in the Bible? The scriptures will tell us how important Paul is to the Gentiles. Paul is our Apostle for today.

    Lucy gottlib, very well spoken. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17. We are all on this site for a reason, we all love the Lord . We are seeking for answers or just want to express ourselves to others in what we have learned, that is good. We must keep searching God until that day comes. We can only hope that people will find God. God bless you. ....
