Text: Timothy 1:1-11
#1 in I Timothy Series
Mr Martin begins preaching in the book of 1 Timothy with the call to leadership and the purpose of Paul’s letter to Timothy. The church is the “pillar and buttress of truth” because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The mission of the church is not only the preservation of the church but to have a strategic vision for the further progress of God’s Kingdom.
We also look to Paul’s salutation. The significance of this greeting is often over-looked. In just a few words a large part of the Ephesian problem is addressed (the church had turned away from Paul’s authority and salvation through Jesus Christ which he preached). We will look at Paul’s authority, why Timothy is a “true son in the faith,” and God’s blessing on believers. I Timothy 1:1-11
