Series: A Faithful Servant (2 Timothy)[#1]
SERVE WITH EFFECTIVENESS
1. Paul’s 2nd letter to Timothy is of a personal nature.
2. This letter speaks of being a faithful servant.
3. We will look at 2 service goals and barriers in our text this morning.
1. The Goal: Serve God with a clear conscience.
2. Your Reach: “Fan into flame the gift of God.” God’s Reach: “A spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline.”
3. The Barriers: Self.
1. The Goal: Serve God without being ashamed.
2. Your Reach: Suffer for the Gospel. God’s Reach: The giver of salvation through Jesus Christ.
3. The Barriers: The world.
1. The result of serving God with a clear conscience and not being ashamed is effectiveness.
2. God asks us to be available. He asks us to serve Him to the best of our ability; knowing that He is the One who makes us effective.
3. If you are here without Christ as Savior, there will come a day when time will be up. Find new life in Christ today before it is too late.
