If we compare our abilities in ministry to those of others, we can quickly become discouraged. Alistair Begg reassures us, however, that our weaknesses actually make us usable in God’s hands. In this study, we see that despite his youthfulness, timidity, frailty, and fears, Timothy was used mightily in the advancement of the Gospel. Shaped by God and empowered by His Spirit, we can fulfill the unique purposes He assigns us for His glory.
7But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
