George Knight aptly summarizes the thrust of this passage: "Teach these things and undergo training to become more godly" (Pastoral Epistles, p. 193). Timothy's charge as a "good servant of Christ Jesus" is to labor in teaching sound doctrine, but it is not enough to have good teaching. Timothy's aim for himself and his church is godliness ( εὐσέβεια ), a life totally consecrated to God. Godliness is the fruit of "training" and is a worthy goal and hope, holding promise for the present and future life.
