Fight the Good Fight of the Faith

1 Timothy, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy

Today, as Paul's letter of First Timothy comes to a close, Paul exhorts Timothy to “flee”, “pursue”, “fight the good fight of the faith”, “keep the commandment unstained”, “guard the deposit” and “avoid irreverent babble”. In a word, Paul is calling Timothy – and us – to persevere. This is an incredibly important topic throughout the Scriptures. Jesus calls us to not only start well, but finish well. What happens in between is called perseverance.

Storing Up Treasure as a Good Foundation

1 Timothy, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy

Today, as we near the end of 1 Timothy, Paul deals with a topic that he has only touched on fo far: money. It turns out there was just as much confusion about how to view and use money in Ephesus as there is today in Seattle.

The Great Gain in Godliness with Contentment

1 Timothy, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy

Last week, Paul was addressing some false teaching that crept in, namely that Godliness was a means to gain. That God is here for my good, for my gain, that it’s all about me. In contrast, and where we pick up today in 1 Tim 6:6-8, is that there is great gain in Godliness, but the great gain is found in where our ultimate contentment lies.

Sound Words and Unhealthy Cravings

1 Timothy, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy

We are on the tail end of our study through First Timothy. Paul’s words here are not mere pastoral advice or apostolic counsel, but God’s priorities for a healthy local, Jesus-loving, Bible-believing, Gospel-centered church. Today, in 1Tim 6:3-5, Paul directly
addresses the topic of false teaching.

Last week, we saw the letter shift its focus, with the start of chapter five, to address how to navigate the many varied relationships that exist within the church. The big question today, in 5:17-25: how is the church to relate to the leadership of the church?

Some Will Depart From the Faith

1 Timothy, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy
Today, in 4:1-6, Paul warns us that “some will depart from the faith” and then helps us to understand some of causes behind that. This is helpful not only for understanding how this happens in the lives of others but also for understanding how it could happen in our life.
