2 Timothy - The Unashamed Gospel of God

As Paul writes his final letter, he urges Timothy to endure in suffering and not to be ashamed of the gospel or the suffering that it brings.  In a world of consumer church, and short lived excitment, 2 Timothy offers us an alternative view that holds no promises of an easy life, but one of eternal glory. Find out what the true gospel is as we walk through with Timothy what it means to have a spirit of power, love, and self control.

2 Timothy 4 The Pastor is… to Preach the Word of God April 6th, Pastor John Geaney

What is the greatest threat to the health of the church?  Paul gives us the answer, he tells us what we should expect from a Pastor.

2 Timothy 3:10-17 The Pastor is… to keep loving the Word of God March 23rd, Pastor John geaney

The big idea of today’s passage is that Timothy is to be different from the world by following the bible, and nothing else.  The key verse is V 14;"But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it"

2 Timothy 3:1-9 The Pastor is… to keep watch ove the flock March 16th, Pastor John geaney

The big idea of today’s passage is that a church can appear to be following Christ, but yet deny the gospel power. This comes down to false teachers going off track with the bible, and causing congregations to misplace their love in themselves, money and pleasure, rather than God, as well as misplace their trust in their own abilites rather than in the power of God.  A must listen to as we live in these times of the last days!

2 Timothy 2:20-26 The Pastor is… to be set apart for the gospel March 9th, Pastor John geaney

The big idea of today’s passage is that the person who teaches the bible, is to be set apart for the gospel. Clean by the blood of the Lamb to be useful to God, the Master of the great house.

2 Timothy 2:14-19  The Pastor is.... to be approved for the gospel! March 2nd, Pastor John geaney

Guarding the gospel through entrusting it to men approved for gospel ministry, who will carry the gospel on to a future generation.  Kingdom Building V Gospel Crumbling

2 Timothy 2:1-13  The Pastor is.... to endure for the gospel! February 23rd, Pastor John geaney

The Key verse is verse 10.  Enduring for the sake of the elect.  The Christian life is hard.  If you are trying and there is no satisfaction in that, then check your hearts motive.  You’ve got to become dominated by the gospel. Christians who are too comfortable to think they need to endure need to ask the important question why!  The problem with comfortable Christians is, from God’s point of view, they don’t exist.  Either you are a Christian or you are comfortable, you can’t be both.

2 Timothy 1:8-18  The Pastor is.... to be dominated by the gospel! February 16th, Pastor John geaney

Dominated by the gospel > Pursuing Holiness > Get that God is enough.  As a Christian in a new life, to find the satisfaction that can only be found in Christ we must pursue Him and be dominated by Him.  This happens when we desire to be Holy like He is holy.  The pursuit of Holiness is the key that unlocks the blessing of contentment in Christ.  It’s living in the freedom that Christ has set you free from sin.  He has done the work, you don’t have to do the work, just take hold of what you already have been given.  It is exchanging the values of this world for the value of holiness, which is worth infinitely more than anything the world has on offer because of what it brings.  Contentment in Christ.

2 Timothy 1:1-7  The Pastor is.... never to give up on treasuring the gospel & keep his thinking clear! February 9th, Pastor John geaney

How much trouble are you willing to get in to Protect, Promote the gospel through praying and proclaiming the gospel?  When you draw your last breath how will you fiinish this sentence; "Everythinng will  be ok if....."  As Paul looks at the prospect of death his answer is to say ".. as long as the gospel is treasured and carried on to the next generation through faithful biblical preaching"
