According to the Bible, Paul met Timothy in the town of Lystra in Asia Minor on Paul’s second missionary journey.  Timothy was a young believer, the son of a Jewish woman, Eunice, and a Greek father.  Timothy had a good reputation.  Paul asked Timothy to go with him on his journeys, and Timothy did.  Timothy sometimes traveled with Paul, and sometimes Paul left him to minister in different cities and towns.  Paul was very close with Timothy and considered him a beloved son in the Lord.  “For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church,” —1 Corinthians 4:17.

Paul wrote two letters (epistles) to Timothy filled with guidelines on living for God, and living with the brethren.  Today, we can learn much from these epistles and from the humble and faithful young man, Timothy.  These letters are as important to young men as they were when they were first written two thousand years ago.  They apply to you!  The “call” of Paul, through Christ, is for you too!  Learn the things that Paul wanted Timothy to know.
