On Sunday gone, Fiona led us through 2 Tim 2:14-26. It's a wonderful text in its own right, but Fiona encouraged us to see a Godly message to those who care for his truth.
We are to rightly handle his word, to do so with boldness, but also with kindness and gentleness.
Fiona has provided us with some notes, which you can find below. These contain a list of apposite quotations from the commentaries of Calvin and Henry, as well as her own commentary on 2 Tim 2:25-26 in particular.
Fiona led us last night in a wonderful examination of 2 Tim 1:8 - 2:7. We looked at Timothy's calling - to faithfully teach the Word no matter what, to expect and endure suffering, and to be sustained in that suffering by the the grace of God in Christ.
Fiona also read to us a beautiful poem by G.A. Studdert-Kennedy (aka 'Woodbine Willie'), entitled A Sermon In A Hospital - in which the poet (a WW1 chaplain) wonders why God chose to allow his mate Bill to suffer, ultimately finding in Christ not only the example of our sufferings, but in his death we find "the God that sees it through", for me and for you. Even when we're called to endure horrors.
A great session - find notes below.
