Second Timothy 1:1-7

A snowstorm kept most of our congregation at home, but several of us were able to come to the meetinghouse. We departed from our usual order of service for a more informal time of singing, prayer, and Scripture reading. I spoke briefly on the text of Second Timothy 1:1-7. This recording I made at home later, seeking to repeat my thoughts as I had spoken them earlier.

Galatians 1:11-24

This passage begins what is the main part, or body, of Paul’s public letter to the Galatian churches. Here he states his first main idea and begins to provide support for it. The apostle does not expect the believers simply to accept what he says because he says it, but provides reasons. Our faith is not a blind faith, but one that is reasonable. God expects us to use our minds as we search for truth.
