A Good Disciple

Mentoring by the Apostle Paul

A Good Finish

2 Timothy 4:9-22 • June 22, 2014 • Pastor Ryan Keeney

Our Good King makes good disciples—this is a sure thing: “For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son” (Rom. 8:29). It is a divine certainty that you will be like Jesus! God’s plan to make you more like our Good King is to shape you through his Spirit and his Word in the midst of Christian relationships; to disciple you and for you to disciple others. 2 Timothy is written by Paul of Tarsus, the great missionary, church planter, and Apostle who authored much of the New Testament. In it we can sit under his mentorship, like meeting with an old, seasoned saint for coffee over the course of seven weeks as he shares years of faithful ministry, missionary suffering, and Spirit-filled passion for the Gospel of Jesus. 2 Timothy is the Apostle Paul’s last letter, written at the end of his life, while imprisoned in Rome awaiting execution. In this, his “last will and testament,” Paul talks about the “good deposit” (1:14) referring to the Gospel, being a “good soldier” (2:3), ready to do “good work” (2:21, 3:17); he warns us that some are “not loving good” (3:3), and that we should fight the “good fight” (4:7). In essence, he teaches us and shows us what it looks like to be a Good Disciple.
