When interacting with others, Christian leaders – and the rest of us – may be tempted to quarrel over points where we disagree. Exploring the final verses of 2 Timothy 2, Alistair Begg shows how the Apostle Paul emphasized kindness and patience toward all people, allowing God Himself to stir repentance in unbelieving hearts.

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.

When we consider what it might look like to live a life that is committed to the cause of the Gospel, the Apostle Paul is an excellent example. As Alistair Begg explains, what set Paul apart was not that he didn’t value the ordinary experiences of life, but that he viewed them all in relationship to the purposes and care of God. When we live with the Gospel in view, we learn that the greatest value is in a life lived well for God’s glory.

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.
