A Note of Certainty  ( 2 Timothy 2:3-8 )  Sunday Message

This year the Easter theme of resurrection is particularly meaningful to me. Immediately after this service I will go to the airport and leave for the Holy Land to visit areas about which I have long studied but have never been to myself. On this tour my family and I, along with others from this church, will be visiting many places of interest to Bible students: Rome, Athens, Jerusalem, Galilee, Nazareth -- these names are as familiar to our ears as those of the streets here in Palo Alto.

The Test Of Faith  ( 2 Timothy 2:3-13 )  Daily Devotion

Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; if we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself (2 Timothy 2:11-13).

Soldier's, Athletes, and Farmers  ( 2 Timothy 2:3-13 )  Sunday Message

The business of Christians in any age is to guard the truth which has been entrusted to them. That was the Apostle Paul's charge to Timothy in Second Timothy 1:14: "Guard the truth which has been entrusted to you." In Chapter 2 of that letter we are exploring four ways by which this is accomplished. As Christians, it is necessary for us to understand that must be done in every age.

Follow the Leader  ( 2 Timothy 2:8 )  Sunday Message

I was thinking about Easter this past week and I realized that since I had become a Christian, as a boy, that this is my fifty-fifth Easter celebration -- yet they never grow old! If we take the date of the crucifixion as 30 A. D. (as I think it probably was), then this is the one thousand nine hundredth and fifty-third celebration of Easter for the church.

Avoiding Congregational Gangrene  ( 2 Timothy 2:14-19 )  Sunday Message

In our study of the Apostle Paul's second letter to Timothy, today we come to a major division of the epistle. Paul has been addressing the question of how to stand firm as a Christian, how to maintain the truth in a world that is falling apart. That is a very relevant issue to our own times, and we have seen much of great help to us in this letter. But now, at the fourteenth verse of the second chapter, a new subject is introduced, because Paul is addressing a new tactic of the enemy. The devil is very clever in his attack upon Christians and Christianity.

God's Firm Foundation  ( 2 Timothy 2:14-19 )  Daily Devotion

Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: The Lord knows those who are his, and, Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness (2 Timothy 2:19).

In other words, Paul is telling Timothy not to panic over the problems in the church. He acknowledges that there may be heresy in the congregation, there may be dissension among the members, and Timothy may have to do battle against it, but he should remember: God's solid foundation stands firm.

Fit To Be Used  ( 2 Timothy 2:20-26 )  Daily Devotion

Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart (2 Timothy 2:22).

Fit to be Used  ( 2 Timothy 2:20-22 )  Sunday Message

I want to speak this morning to all who want to be used of God. I would suspect that deep in every person's heart here there is a desire that God might use him. That is a normal and a proper desire. There is no thrill like the thrill of being used of God.

Guidelines for Controversies  ( 2 Timothy 2:23-26 )  Sunday Message

When the Apostle Paul wrote his second letter to Timothy from his dungeon in Rome, he realized that Timothy was living in a world that was about to explode in conflict -- a world that was very much like the one we live in today. Timothy had another problem too: he was teaching a church which was threatening to split apart and divide into factions over arguments and divisions which were separating believers.
