Transcript

  • 1. • Paul wrote of this honor. • “If I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!” (1 Cor 9:16). • “We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us” (2 Cor 4:7).
  • 2. • These are the last recorded words of Paul. • “O, but they say the tongues of dying men enforce attention like a deep harmony: Where words are scarce they are seldom spent in vain, for they breathe their words in pain” (Richard II). • You can learn much about a man by what he says in his last hours.
  • 3. THE WEIGHT OF PREACHING v1
  • 4. • Paul commissions Timothy “before God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” • Preaching is important because Jesus will judge the living and the dead. • Preaching is important because of Jesus’ appearing. • Preaching is important because Jesus has a kingdom.
  • 5. THE WORK OF PREACHING v2
  • 6. • “Preach the word!” • Great preachers through the ages have done this. • God put His words in Jeremiah’s mouth (Jer 1:9). • Micaiah said, “As the LORD lives, whatever the LORD says to me, that I will speak” (1 Ki 22:14). • “I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God” (Acts 20:26-27).
  • 7. • He’s to do it “in season and out of season.” • He’s to convince. • He’s to rebuke (2 Tim 2:24-25). • He’s to exhort, encourage. • He’s not to fail in patience or teaching.
  • 8. THE WHY OF PREACHING vv 3-4
  • 9. • The time is coming when men will not endure sound doctrine. • People will turn from truth to fables.
  • 10. THE WHO OF PREACHING v5
  • 11. • One who is watchful in all things. • One who will endure suffering. • One who will do the work of an evangelist. • One who will fulfill his ministry.
