1 Timothy 6:20–21
On more than one occasion, Paul admonished Timothy to stand sentry at the strongbox of the faith, to defend the treasure vouchsafed to him (1 Timothy 6:20; 2 Timothy 1:14). Timothy was to guard the gospel with his life. But he didn't stand this post alone; Paul and the apostles stood with him—as do all Christians who protect the truth of God's Word, from the first century to the twenty-first century. In fact, everyone who ministers, whether as a vocation or as a volunteer, is commanded to “guard what has been entrusted” (1 Timothy 6:20); it's an essential part of ministry.
