Perspective

In this sermon series, we go through 2 Timothy and we discover God’s perspective on life’s big issues. As Paul is writing this letter to Timothy, Paul is in jail at the end of his life and many people have deserted him. The natural response would be to become bitter and stop giving of yourself. Yet Paul keeps giving himself to Timothy, to the church, and to the Lord. We can learn from Paul and his godly perspective on life, death, suffering, and the gospel.

Life and Death
In this text we see four images that help us develop God’s perspective on life and death. The first image is an offering, and we learn we are called to live our lives as a sacrifice. The second image is a departure, and we are encouraged that there is life after death. The third image is a race, and we are called to keep running and endure to the end. The final image is a reward, and we are reminded that following Christ to the end is worth it!

    Truth
    2 Timothy 4:1-5
    In this sermon, we discover the problem is that we are naturally inclined to gravitate away from the truth toward error.  We talk about why this happens and what this downward process involves.  We also discover the solution to this problem.  We ask and answer the big questions about how to combat falsehood and darkness with truth and light.

    Enduring
    In this passage and sermon we are called to endure. We have all started new projects or hobbies that we have eventually quit. We often have a similar temptation in our faith to slow down or even quit. We learn from this text several keys for enduring the race set before us.

    Evil
    Evil is a term that has become less popular because it is a theological term that implies moral absolutes. In this sermon, we learn a biblical perspective of evil. We discover that evil is often subtle and quick to spread. We talk about the root of evil, the marks of evil, the response to evil, and the limits of evil.

    Thinking
    In this sermon, we talk about right thinking. Unfortunately, many people believe we have to ignore rationality and logic in order to have faith. But God has given us a mind and we are supposed to use it as we love God with our mind. We look at the call to right thinking, the importance of right thinking, and practical steps we can take to develop a Christian mind.
