On Sunday, June 28, 2015, Pastor Joe Troutman preached Strengthend by Grace (2 Timothy 2:1-2).

Because Jesus Christ has died and risen, you therefore be strengthened by the grace of God.

1. Strength Training—The ordinary means of grace—the Word, sacraments and prayer—point us to the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus Christ, and are the way God strengthens the faith of believers in Christ. Although a passive command, the call to be strengthened by God’s grace is not a call to inactivity, but to active dependence on the Lord who strengthens us by his grace.

2. Passing It On—The gospel preached by the apostles has been entrusted to our care. Our strengthening by his means of grace is not merely for our individual benefit, but to enable us to preserve the apostolic gospel and to pass it on to future generations.
