Sunday Morning Worship (9:30 AM)

Sermon Text: 2 Timothy 3:16-17

[16] All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, [17] that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (ESV)

This Sunday we will be continuing our study through Paul’s second epistle to Timothy. Here in our text he is exhorting Timothy to continue on in the truth as he had been taught it from Paul himself (v.14), and, primarily, from the Scriptures (v.15-16).

In doing so, Timothy would be “complete” as a man of God, “equipped for every good work” (v.17), unlike the false teachers, who just got progressively worse and worse, “deceiving and being deceived” (v.13).

All believers (and even especially pastors and teachers) must hold fast to the truth as we have been taught it, considering the character and faith of those from whom we learned it. And even more importantly, we must stand firm upon the Scriptures, which alone can make us “wise for salvation” (v.15), and “equipped for every good work” (v.17). Chasing after every new wind of doctrine or speculation can by no means do those things.

We hope that you will join us for worship this Sunday! If you are unable to join us in-person, you can watch the live-stream of the service on our church’s YouTube channel (starting @ 9:30 AM PST): RVPC Sunday Morning Live-Stream
