1 & 2 Timothy

By Scott Brown, 2017/08/03

In 1 and 2 Timothy, Paul writes to Timothy, a young pastor in the city of Ephesus, to teach him how to fight the good fight of faith and the importance of fostering faithful conduct in the house of God. Paul also instructs him how to manage the affairs of the church.

One of the realities of pastoral ministry is that pastors often encounter many varied challenges. Paul himself said, “I fought with beasts in Ephesus.” Timothy was no different. He pastored in a pagan city and faced many difficulties.What is the solution? Hold fast to the Word of God which is “given by inspiration of God and is profitable” for everything.
