Worship Guide for August 7

August 04, 2022


Prepare for Sunday morning worship by using the guide below. 

1 Timothy 1:12-20

12 I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service, 13 though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, 14 and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. 16 But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life. 17 To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

18 This charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 19 holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith, 20 among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme.

Watch the Sermon

livestreamupdatedSummary: What does the church teach its members for spiritual health and perseverance? As we saw last week, the church is called to confront false doctrine and to fight the good fight of faith for the gospel. In other words, Paul encourages Timothy to preach the gospel. He does this by first sharing his own call to salvation and his commissioning to ministry. After this he charges Timothy to fight the good fight of faith and to not swerve from the gospel of glory of this blessed God.
