What does a healthy church look like? In 2 Timothy 2:14-19, we learn that one distinguishing mark is a pastor committed to the Word of God. As Alistair Begg explains, pastors must ground their ministry in the Gospel while the people resist the temptation to quarrel over nonessentials. When this happens, God works through His Word, by His Spirit, in His people, and churches grow in maturity and godliness.

Pastors face constant pressure to swerve from the clear truths of the Gospel and to pursue the approval of others. Alistair Begg encourages pastors to steer a different course for ministry by living and serving for the approval of God. Although discouragements may abound, pastors and their congregations can be encouraged that God is working out His good purposes as we strive for purity in doctrine and lifestyle.

Sometimes a hymn can help us understand important gospel truths. In 2 Timothy 2, the Apostle Paul quoted a hymn that was sung by the early Church, using it to present four key points about a believer’s relationship to the Lord Jesus. Alistair Begg explains how these four points demonstrate that God is faithful to both His promises and His warnings. Both call us to repent and believe in Him.
