I Timothy 1:1-2

Today, we are starting a new series of sermons based on the book of 1 Timothy. 1 Timothy is a part of 3 books, often called the “Pastoral Epistles”. These books have always fascinated those who ask, “How does God want the church to function today?” “What is the environment which will allow the church to reach the lost and make a large and public declaration of Christ in any culture?”

1 Timothy was written to help the church know how to behave, so that the truth of the gospel would be held high before a watching world. How relevant this is for us today. If we, at Willingdon Church follow the directives in this book, we will find that the city in which we live will hear of and learn the wonderful truth of God in Christ, reconciling the world to himself.
