Tears Of Love  ( 2 Timothy 1:1-7 )  Daily Devotion

Recalling your tears, I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy (2 Timothy 1:4).

We come to this second letter to Timothy with quickened anticipation, realizing that these are the last recorded words of the Apostle Paul. Tradition tells us that shortly after this letter was written, Paul was taken out on the Ostian Way, outside the city of Rome, and there on an April morning he was beheaded.

How to Defend a Lion  ( 2 Timothy 1:14 - 2:2 )  Sunday Message

Almost every Christian alive has heard the famous quotation from Charles Spurgeon, the great English preacher, about defending the Scripture. Spurgeon said, "Scripture is like a lion. Who ever heard of defending a lion? Just turn it loose; it will defend itself." That oft-quoted word has a great deal of truth in it. Notice that it does not deny that lions sometimes need defending; it merely recognizes that the best way to do that is to turn a lion loose and it will defend itself.

In the midst of the hurry-burly and hustle and bustle of Christmas, while we were getting the tree and trimming it, and in the midst of all that accompanies this festive season, the thought suddenly occurred to me, "How did the 1st century Christians celebrate Christmas?" Or did they celebrate the birthday of our Lord Jesus Christ? I took my New Testament and made a rather startling discovery. I found there is no Christmas celebration recorded at all in the New Testament! There is, of course, the coming of the shepherds and the wise men.

The Call to Courage  ( 2 Timothy 1:8-13 )  Sunday Message

During the presentation on the work of the Christian Service Brigade this morning, it struck me that the beautiful thing about the work of these men with young boys is that they are passing the torch of faith on to another generation. It is always encouraging to see that happening. That is the way a new and upcoming generation learns values, principles and guidelines that will steady it and hold it in the midst of the swirling maelstroms of unbelief and immorality it has to face.

The Call To Courage  ( 2 Timothy 1:8-13 )  Daily Devotion

So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God . . . (2 Timothy 1:8).

The Death of Death  ( 2 Timothy 1:10 )  Sunday Message

Easter Sunday is the day when those who seldom go to church during the rest of the year do come. In my judgment this is a very good thing. It is well to have a Sunday set aside as a kind of ecclesiastical open house, during which the essence of what the church believes is set forth for examination and evaluation by those who are considering Christianity. Therefore, we make you welcome, all who are here as visitors or who seldom have come to church this year. But then, the fact that you do seldom come indicates something.

How To Be Strong  ( 2 Timothy 1:14-2:2 )  Daily Devotion

You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:1).
