Fortifications for Faithful Living: A Sermon from 1 Timothy 6

The first letter to Timothy reads like Paul’s dispatches from the frontlines, his marching orders for the young pastor as he grapples with the labors of ministry. Timothy is being prepared for the conflict that naturally follows gospel proclamation. He is being fortified — secured, surrounded, and strengthened — with the defensive reinforcements of “sound doctrine” that he might do the same in and for the church.
