1 Timothy 1:18-20 "Doctrine from the Pulpit"
As Paul instructs this young pastor, he lets Timothy know there is a great need for the church to know the truth of the Gospel. Paul actually lets him know that in teaching the doctrinal truth of the Christian life, he will need to do so as if he were in a fight; a spiritual battle against Satan, the world and our own desires. The only way to win is to have our lives filled with God's Spirit and our hearts and minds in the Word of God. Paul lets Timothy and us know that God's children need to hear teaching that builds and strengthens us. Be encouraged today as you listen to this message.
