“Equipping the Saints for Ministry”

img_1498The apostle Paul wrote 2 Timothy from an unusual perspective . He was writing from a horrible prison, bound with chains and very aware that he was about to be martyred. Immanent and certain death has a way of clarifying life. Paul, knowing he himself would likely be bound in chains until the day he would be executed, was very clear that it would be others including Timothy who would be furthering the cause of the gospel and not him. Knowing his own situation and knowing that the only thing that really works is the Gospel, Paul writes to help equip Timothy and those who would follow in the Gospel, the Word and in ministry action.
