Growing Stronger, Investing Strategically

Preacher:
Passage: 2 Timothy 2:1-2

This weekend we come to the close of The Bible’s Greatest Hits series. It has been fantastic hearing from different voices and different sections of Scripture over these six weeks. (Plus, singing some classic worship tunes has been fun as well!) To wrap things up, Marvin Brubacher, is preaching on 2 Timothy 2:1-2. Over more than four decades of vocational ministry, he has consistently lived out the truth of this text. Here is his preview of the message:

The final instruction Jesus gave to his followers was, “Make disciples of all nations.” This is not a one-time event; it is a lifelong process of growing into the likeness of Christ. Healthy plants grow because they are planted in good soil; so do healthy followers of Jesus. Healthy plants also reproduce; so do healthy Christ followersthey “make disciples.” I am looking forward to exploring these important discipleship processes with you this weekend as we open the Bible to two of my favourite verses.
