Pastor and People

From Series: Guard the Truth, Volume 2

2 Timothy 2:14-15  (ID: 3043)

What does a healthy church look like? In 2 Timothy 2:14-15, 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.


A Worker Approved by God

14Remind them of these things, and charge them before God2 not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers.
