Paul instructs Timothy that his full focus should be on the ministry and likens that effort to that of a soldier. “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” Elder Ben looks at the use of the word warreth. The warfare we are engaged in is a battle for hearts and minds of God’s children. When we are born again, we are drafted into God’s army. It’s important to realize we are in a war and we must put on the proper armor. And he reminds us that the word of God is our weapon in this battle.
