In his last letter to his protege, the Apostle Paul instructed Timothy to guard the "good deposit" of the Gospel message. Alistair Begg explains that the challenges and encouragements they faced are not unlike those faced by Christian leaders today. In the midst of pressure to conform to a secular culture and opposition from some who should be friends, there will also be loving support from believers who remain faithful and active in supporting Gospel ministry.

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."

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.

Each person is constantly interpreting their world through a grid, through a specific lens. Kevin DeYoung contrasts viewing life through the lens of fairness contra the glasses of grace. Taking us to the Parable of the Vineyard Laborers in Matthew 20, Kevin takes the three questions at the end of Jesus' famous parable to help expose how often the pastor's heart can give into viewing life through the lens of fairness rather than the glasses of grace.
