Fight the Good Fight of the Faith

1 Timothy: Truth to Thrive By, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy: Truth to Thrive By

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: Truth to Thrive By, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy: Truth to Thrive By

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: Truth to Thrive By, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy: Truth to Thrive By

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: Truth to Thrive By, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy: Truth to Thrive By

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.

God’s Glory and Our Work

1 Timothy: Truth to Thrive By, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Timothy: Truth to Thrive By

The last two chapters of 1 Timothy deal predominantly with relationships among various groups within the church: relating to different age groups (5:1-2), relating to those in greatest need (5:3-16), relating to pastors (5:17-25), and, today, relating to one another at work (6:1-2).
