But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

2 Timothy 3:14

But Continue thou …

Has God taught you any lessons lately?  If so, wouldn’t it be a tragedy to let these lessons slip away.  If we are going to profit from the lessons learned, then we must do as Paul challenged Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:14, “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;”.   Timothy was blessed to have had a faithful teacher in the Apostle Paul and was also blessed to have the assurance of those things that he had been taught were true and right.  The challenge laid down in this verse is to CONTINUE.  Isn’t that a challenge that we all need?  How many lessons has God taught you in the past, that you are not actively practicing in your life right now?  Will God have to take us back to square one?  What a tragedy it is to stay at square one when God has much more He wants to teach us.  If will not practice the simple lessons, then it will be impossible for God to move us on to higher ground.  I am convinced that God wants to take His children to great heights, but we must be willing to follow His lessons fully in order to continue progressing in our Christian life.  Let’s all practice the challenge thrown down by Paul to Timothy to “Continue thou in the things which thou hast learned”.
