In his letter to Timothy about the household of faith, the Apostle Paul called faith a profound mystery. On Truth For Life, Alistair Begg turns to the book of First Timothy to unravel this Mystery of Godliness.
For many, the Church is merely a gathering of people participating in religious activities. But the Bible makes clear that what God desires is a relationship with His children. When individuals grasp the immensity of God’s grace and respond in faith, they are born again by His Spirit and are incorporated into the Household of Faith.
In this series, Alistair Begg explores the first five chapters of 1Timothy, noting how keen Paul was to ensure that Timothy fulfilled his duties with moral integrity and Biblical authority. Recognizing that godly leadership was vital for the progress of the Church, Paul warned Timothy of false teachers and provided instructions for the proper conduct of God’s people in God’s household. When Christians have a proper sense of God and refuse to compromise, our lives will reflect Him, our service will glorify Him, our worship will please Him, and generations to come will be grounded in His Truth.
