At the start of the third chapter of his second letter to Timothy, Paul warned this young pastor about difficulties he could expect from the surrounding culture. Alistair Begg helps us see that these same difficulties have faced every generation of believers, and explains how the world’s “solution” to the underlying problem is itself part of the problem. Only in Christ do we find the real answer: loving God above all.

When interacting with others, Christian leaders – and the rest of us – may be tempted to quarrel over points where we disagree.

Christians often talk about being “used by God,” but what does that look like in daily life? Using Paul’s picture of a useful vessel in 2 Timothy 2, Alistair Begg helps us work through this concept. We learn that it means daily choices to live in the privilege of holiness, and the pursuit of godliness while fleeing from sin.
