What Matters at the End

Oct 19, 2014

Today we conclude the book of 2nd Timothy, focusing on Paul’s final recorded words. And, as we do, we are presented with what really matters. At the end of the day, when we are called to take our last breath, our possessions, our positions, our power or prestige will mean nothing.

Paul’s final words are more than challenging, they cut deep. As we see in the first paragraph of the fourth chapter of 2nd Timothy, Paul has a desire to see his work continue through both the ministers called to preach and through those who hear preaching. In this paragraph, we come to see why so many ignore the preaching, why it does not change them, and...

One thing that rings clear in the book of 2nd Timothy is the fact that the church is a church at war. Spiritual warfare is happening all the time, all around us.

As we enter into chapter 3 of the challenging book of 2nd Timothy, Paul reveals a bit of fearfulness. The Apostle was not fearful of his current condition, languishing away in a prison cell. And he was not fearful with regard to the certain success of the Gospel. However, he was fearful for the little church at Ephesus, a church that was being pastored by a...
