A Long Obedience (Week 1): “How to Encourage a Friend”

Jason Mayhall, Lead Pastor – 2 Timothy 1:1-7

This week, Redemption Bible Church starts a new sermon series entitled “A Long Obedience in the Same Direction.” 2 Timothy is likely the last letter the Apostle Paul ever wrote, a message of encouragement and perseverance to his close friend Timothy. Pastor Jason Mayhall teaches how Christians have the capacity to encourage and reignite one another in the faith. This is exemplified in the relationship between Paul and Timothy as they pray for one another and express the deep bond they’ve shared in Christ. All Christians should urge one another in the faith especially when it is difficult as the Christian life requires a steadfastness that can only be strengthened through God’s word.
