Scripture: 2 Timothy 1
Realizing that the end of his life and ministry were near, the Apostle Paul reached out to a young man named Timothy. The letter penned by Paul to a junior pastor focuses on the necessity of passing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the next generation of believers. These messages by Alistair Begg explore the final written words of the great apostle and how vitally important his instruction is for us today.
In Volume 1 of this series, Paul encourages Timothy to prepare to suffer for the Gospel. As believers hold fast to the truth, we can trust God to strengthen and sustain us. In every age and culture, God’s people must be convinced of what they believe and continue in the truth. Church leaders must guard the Gospel and pass it faithfully to those who come after. Pastors and congregations who are concerned to raise up and nurture the next generation of Christians are following the example of the Apostle Paul and the Lord Jesus Christ.
May 9 – 27
Contemporary churchgoers may find themselves considering the early days of the Christian church with fond nostalgia. However, in reading through Luke’s account in Acts, we find that the early Church was not a group of elite Christians. Instead, they wrestled with the very same challenges that face the 21st century Church today.
In this series, Alistair Begg traces a line from the first century Church to the 21st century Church by examining issues such as our alienation from God, our tendency to present a cheapened Gospel, the juxtaposition of divine predestination and human free will, our culture’s obsession with idolatry, and God’s ultimate power to save. We learn that the early Christians devoted themselves to the teaching of God’s Word and the spreading of the Gospel by depending on the Holy Spirit, and we are encouraged to hold firmly to the truth of Christ’s saving work as we engage our communities.
