Preached by Rev. Jacob Crane on Sunday, October 27th, 2019
A part of the 2 Timothy and the Gospel series.
In the closing of Paul’s second letter of Timothy, his beloved son is urged to proclaim the message of salvation through faith in Jesus. And, to correct, rebuke and exhort the false teachers within the church, and those seduced by the passions of the world.
The theme of suffering is never far away in Paul’s final epistle. We’re reminded again that his ministry has been dominated by isolation, suffering and persecution. But we’re also taught that God may use these experiences so that the message of salvation might be proclaimed to the world.
This leaves us to ask, what if the difference between the church and the world being as it is, and being as God intended, is the pain and suffering we’re unwilling to endure?
Join us as we conclude our four-week series on Paul’s second letter to Timothy.
