In his final letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul's concern is that the gospel of Jesus Christ will be taught correctly to future generations. Alistair Begg challenges us in this message to deepen our own understanding of the gospel by applying our minds to the study of scripture and by incorporating its truths into our lives.

The Son of God was not crucified as a helpless victim. Jesus gave up his life as an obedient, deliberate, and purposeful sacrifice that bore away the sins of His people once and for all. Alistair Begg reminds us that Christians look to Christ's completed work, and to His work alone, for our standing before God and our hope for the future.

Though he was imprisoned and facing death, Paul's highest concern in his second letter to Timothy was for the gospel - that the message of grace and redemption would be passed to future generations. His roles, first as an apostle of Jesus Christ, and then as a preacher and teacher of the Gospel opened the door for his own suffering, but his confidence in the faithfulness of God sustained and nurtured his own faith under persecution.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ can be difficult to talk about; its message is foreign to others - even offensive. In his second letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul exhorted him to not be ashamed, but to be willing to suffer for preaching the truth. Suffering for the gospel in this way exposes our own weakness, but provides an opportunity for God’s power to be displayed through us.

When Paul encouraged Timothy to join in his suffering for the gospel, he left no question about what the gospel is. It is not a vague idea that can mean whatever we want, and it cannot be changed to suit our circumstances. As Alistair Begg explains, the gospel is the good news that sinful men and women are given new life and a new calling by faith in Christ, and it reorients how we view every aspect of life and ministry.

When Paul commended Timothy for his "sincere faith," what did he mean? Beginning with this passage in 2 Timothy, Alistair Begg examines the nature of saving faith and explains how it must be the basis for ministry. Like the young pastor Paul addresses, we must also develop the gifts that God has given us in order to bear spiritual fruit.

As Paul reminded Timothy, believers must guard against the danger of complacency in ministry and in the Christian life. In this message from 2 Timothy 1:6, Alistair Begg reminds us that it is the Holy Spirit who enables each believer to "fan into flame" the gifts that God has given.

In his second letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul placed his "signature" at the beginning, as was customary at that time. Alistair Begg's message on these opening verses guides us through Paul's greeting to his younger colleague, as he prayed God would give him "grace, mercy, and peace."

It's easy for local congregations to become comfortable and allow our outreach to neighbors and friends to wane. But the pattern of our Lord is a passionate commitment to spread the good news of the kingdom of God. In this message from Matthew 9:36-38, Alistair Begg explains that taking our responsibility to share the gospel seriously means making Jesus' priorities our own by seeing those around us clearly, caring deeply, thinking properly, and praying fervently.

Those who lead any successful enterprise, if they are wise, will cultivate the "next generation" of leaders to ensure its success continues into the future. In this first study in 2 Timothy, Alistair Begg explains how Paul's concern for the Church led him to challenge this younger leader to hold the gospel firmly, without shame or fear.
