Sermon by Steve Shank on 1 Timothy 1:1-2

"Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope,  To Timothy, my true child in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord."

What is going on in 2014?

1. God is sovereignly at work.
Paul did not plan to become the apostle to the gentiles.
- Opportunities for faith
- Trials in our faith
"Faith refuses to look at circumstances without taking God into account."
My times are in Your hands...please rescue me!

“Remember this, had any other condition been better for you than the one in which you are, divine love would have put you there” C. H. Spurgeon

2. Jesus is our hope.
Our hope is in nothing else.

3. All that we need He has supplied.
Whatever happens, God is for us and always provides the grace that we need.
