We live in an increasingly polarised world. Many are gripped by fear, anxiety and outrage. Today, Pastor Rob Abboud opens up 1 Timothy 2 and shows the peace and freedom only possible through Jesus.
After Paul dropped off Timothy to Ephesus in order to help shepherd the church, probably 8 years had passed since they had seen each other. So, Paul takes pen to paper, not knowing when they would reunite, and sees it necessary to write to Timothy concerning how the church should operate. At the centre of all this comes his first exhortation - preach and protect the gospel.
What sounds like the worst of news, is actually the best of news. Today, Lead Pastor Ray Galea opens up 1 Timothy 1 and reminds us that if God can patiently forgive the worst of sinners, then he can forgive anyone.
Our sin always has ourselves at the center, whereas true doctrine always has Jesus at the center. Apostle Paul shows us in his first letter to Timothy that false teaching causes division but the truth of the gospel results in genuine love and a pure heart.
When we silence God, we take away the very thing that those outside the church need. Today, Lead Pastor Ray Galea opens up 1 Timothy 1 and we see just how we silence God. Even when we don’t think we are.
