Entrusted: An Exposition of 1 Timothy

Towards the end of Paul's ministry, he passed the baton of the gospel on to his disciple, Timothy, who was establishing the church at Ephesus. How can we faithfully receive this gospel that has been entrusted to us and pass it on to the next generation?

The Message of Grace

February 23, 2014 | 1 Timothy 1:12-20 | exposition, gospel

As we continue through the book of 1 Timothy, Pastor Gary Combs helps us understand the message of grace that Paul was entrusting to Timothy – that Christ came to save sinners. When we are entrusted with that same gospel, we can continue to be thankful for God’s grace to us, we can allow ourselves to be trophies of grace put on display to show God’s glory, and we can contend for the gospel by staying true to the teaching from the Bible.

“P” is for Personality

February 2, 2014 | Mark 12:28-31 | discipleship

Pastor Gary Combs continues the “Shaped for Significance” series with this message from Mark¬†12:28-32 about Personality. This message focuses on the four aspects of humanity, our heart, soul, mind and strength, that we are to fully use in our love of God and also of others. These four aspects might be viewed through the lens of human personality. The study of personality is helpful in understanding our unique differences and how we need each other. It helps us to show grace to one another. It also refines our search for meaning as we align our work with our SHAPE.
