Staying Healthy

Staying Healthy

1 & 2 Timothy
Jesus came to give us His life in abundance, He has made every Christian into a new creation and has sent His Holy Spirit to dwell in us. So Christians should be full of the life of God at all times, shouldn’t they? Well, it doesn’t always seem like that, and the Bible is too realistic to pretend otherwise. The apostle Paul’s letters are one of many places which show that we are always in need of reminders and challenges to live the life we’ve been given.

Several times in his letters to Timothy, Paul talks about what healthy Christianity looks like. This series looks at how we can have a healthy view of God, healthy relationships with others, and how we can stay faithful, whatever is happening in our lives.
