The Long War

, Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


This week we are back in Mark 9:42-50 to look at Jesus' words regarding the seriousness of sin. Jesus gives us three warnings that address three particular areas of danger. He warns against putting the followers of Jesus at risk for sin, putting ourselves at risk for sin, and loosing our saltiness. Through all of these warnings Jesus calls us to hearts that honor Him over everything else, and to persevere in faith, considering ourselves a living sacrifice in worship to our King.

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.

Wage the Good Warfare

, 1 Timothy, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 TimothySince God is the most precious reality in the universe, it is crucial that we get him right and not merely rely on our own personal preferences, hunches about who He is and what He is like. Everything is on the line if we God – and his Gospel – wrong. This is just as true today as it was 2,000 years ago when this letter was originally written which, of course, is why we’re studying it together. In light of all this, it is not surprising that Paul chooses to close his introduction by emphasizing that the Christian life is a battle and encourages us to “wage the good warfare.” (1:18) The word “good” means “noble” or “excellent”. In other words, Paul is saying that this is most important war you can fight.
