Privileges and purpose of ministry. Privileges of ministry and the purpose of ministry. Paul gives to Timothy his own example so to encourage him not to quit in hard moments. A high, biblical, view of ministry.
Testimony or tempest. The priority of God's mission; the personal need for His mercy; and compassion for the lost. Excellent and true the idea: if we do not submit to God's call to testify about Him and to serve Him, He will send a great tempest in our lives! How many are in tempests for years and not knowing why?
One of the best! This is one of the best sermons I've heard from Pastor Rich, and it should be a great encouragement to Christians, and will help non-Christians understand why we're Christians! Definitely worth a listen.
