Focus, clarify, center, prioritize — this is what Martin Luther did as he studied Romans 1:17: For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith” (NIV).  Prioritizing the gospel sparked the Reformation five-hundred years ago this month. Prioritizing his life and ministry is also how Paul admonished Timothy in today’s text. Do not let personal convictions become your theology; 1 Timothy 4:1-6; Do not let your personal disciplines become your priority; 1Timothy 4:7-11; Do not let your age minimize your ministry; 1 Timothy 4:12-16; Be an example, Focus on the Scriptures, Use your spiritual gift
