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.

Preaching a Psalm of Praise

The Psalmists' exhortations to praise can be discouraging if not viewed in light of the Gospel. In this message, Christopher Ash turns to the book of Psalms to lead us into a deeper of understanding of who God is. Psalm 146 demonstrates how the typical introduction of asking, “How’s your praise life?” is inadequate. Instead, the Psalms invite us to see how Jesus rightfully and perfectly fulfilled these exhortations to praise, enabling us to live a life of praise to God as well.

scripture Ecclesiastes 12:1-14

type Sermon

The final chapter of Ecclesiastes calls us to fear God and commit ourselves to Him. As Alistair Begg demonstrates, this chapter details for the audience the opportunity of youth, the frailty of life, the reality of death, and the certainty of judgment. Into a culture of abject meaninglessness that is not unlike our own, Ecclesiastes also gives us something to live for.

Preachers face many challenges when they come to the Scriptures, including the temptations to exalt originality and, on the other hand, to fall into patterns that are dull and unimaginative. Gary Millar explains that skillful preaching is undergirded by the core convictions that all of the Bible leads to Christ and every part preaches the Gospel. Preaching that communicates the main idea of the text plainly, with sensitivity to the context, tone, and emphasis of the passage, speaks with power, creativity, and freshness to the hearers.

type Sermon
id 3011

Though he was imprisoned and facing death, Paul's highest concern in his second letter to Timothy was for the gospel - that the message of grace and redemption would be passed to future generations. His roles, first as an apostle of Jesus Christ, and then as a preacher and teacher of the Gospel opened the door for his own suffering, but his confidence in the faithfulness of God sustained and nurtured his own faith under persecution.

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."
