The Days and the Difficulties in which we are called to Mission 2 Timothy 3 is a Peter Maiden talk recorded at Keswick Convention - 2011 on 2 Timothy available as CD format.
2 Timothy - Letter from death row
Peter Maiden Second Timothy contains some of the most emotional literature in the whole of our Bible. Paul, struggling with loneliness as he writes, knowing death is imminent, witnessing a mass defection from the faith, passes the baton to his much-loved colleague, Timothy. As we go through the letter together we will see vital lessons for us and for our involvement in the mission of God in his world. The Gospel of God is explained, the place of scripture emphasised. The gifts of God the Holy Spirit are seen as vital for our ministry. The inevitability of suffering but also of ultimate victory is clear. Paul's investment in Timothy is a vital challenge concerning the place of discipling and mentoring in the mission of God today. My prayer is that together we can really get into the mind and heart of the apostle in what were vital and difficult days for him and for the preservation and progress of the Gospel in the world.
