Alistair Begg presents an introduction to the book of Second Timothy in a series titled, "Useful to the Master" on Truth For Life. More
Useful to the MasterPaul’s second letter to Timothy issues a direct challenge to all who are tempted to embrace pragmatism at the expense of truth. Timothy is confronted by confusion in the realm of doctrine and morality. It was vital that he understood the absolute priority of defining and declaring the gospel so as to be able to speak with authority in an age of uncertainty. Some 2000 years later we face the same challenge and these studies prepare us to meet it.

Paul helps Timothy to overcome his frailty and fear and find his confidence in the power which comes from God alone.
