As we view culture unraveling before our eyes, some are tempted to throw up their hands in despair, while others plunge headlong into political activism, believing that to be the answer to our problems. We must, however, affirm the priority of the proclamation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, by which the lives of men and women are changed. For this reason, we're excited about presenting these studies in 1 Timothy. Here we find God's purpose for His people. He has planned from all of eternity to redeem a people that are His very own, in order that ...

A survey of pastors recently revealed that a scant 16% were satisfied with their prayer life. Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile takes us to Paul's first letter to Timothy to show us the basic, yet oft ignored Christian discipline of prayer. With a pastor's heart, Thabiti uses 1 Timothy 2 to discuss what we are to pray, why we pray, and how we are called to pray. For all pastors, the gentle reminder that before we talk to men about God, we should be talking to God about men is a basic which we can never tire of hearing.

“They do the basics well”, these six words from a Liverpool football coach in response to why his team was so successful. Likewise, for all pastors, we too must learn to do the basics well. Pastor John Shearer unpacks four basics no preacher should be without from Paul’s teaching in 1 Timothy 4. With a simplicity that belies its importance, Shearer exhorts the pastor as he does, ‘the greatest work in the world’.

Continuing our focus on the basics, Thabiti Anyabwile explains the nature of the pastor's spiritual warfare from 1 Timothy 4. What is at stake in our spiritual warfare battle is that some will abandon the faith and fall into apostasy. Systematically moving through a series of thought provoking questions, Thabiti reminds the pastor that the cosmic struggle between God and Satan isn't through the sensational and dramatic, but is fought on the battlefield of truth as it is revealed in God's Word.

The call to be a pastor is not to be taken lightly. This passage in First Timothy describes the nature of Timothy's ministry, and is a reminder to pastors today about what it really means to be a pastor - that they are to preach the law, and to also preach the cross.

It was mere millennia past when Paul wrote to his young son in the faith, Timothy to be a ‘man of God’. The admonition has lost neither its impact or its timeliness in our day and culture. As false teachers assailed the early church, Paul sought to encourage and strengthen his protégé in the faith to hold tight to what he had been taught. Drawing from 1 Timothy 6, Pastor Shearer encourages pastors everywhere to flee errant approaches to gospel ministry, follow after virtues of righteousness and godliness and fight the good fight of faith.
