A Clean Heart

Living a godly life begins with the heart. A clean heart will produce pure actions, and God’s work will be shown in our lives.  

Truth and Consequences

The people we surround ourselves with can have an impact on how we live our lives. Paul warns Timothy in 2 Timothy 3 what to look out for and how to handle those who cause problems in living as a Christian.  

The Pursuit of Righteousness

How can followers of God be ready for the work He has prepared for them? It all begins with running in the right direction. Paul encourages Timothy and us what to pursue and what to flee.  


In 2 Timothy 2, Paul encourages compares the walk of a Christian to a soldier, and athlete and a farmer. He encourages Timothy to consider how those qualities will help his own walk with God and the spread of the good news of Jesus.  


Paul writes his second letter to Timothy from a Roman prison. He feels that his life is nearing its end, but he encourages Timothy to choose love over fear and be convinced of what God has done and will do.

The Good Fight

Paul closes his first letter to Timothy with a charge to fight the good fight. To do that, it is necessary to flee the sin that holds us back and pursue the good that God intends for us.  


It seems like we are always wanting more. Society tries to convince us that there is just one more thing to buy to bring happiness. True contentment is only found in God and His promises.  

Beneath the Surface

Both sin and good works may stay secret for a time, but eventually what is beneath the surface will come to light.

Young and Old

In the church people of different generations work together as family. Paul’s instructions to Timothy emphasize the need for young and old to respect and care for each other and our responsibility as family.  


The life of a Christian parallels the life of an athlete in many ways. The second half of 1 Timothy 4 shows us that daily life is just as important as the big moments. This week we’re talking about practice.
