A servant of God is often known by how he handles the Word of Truth in his ministry. For that reason, one of the last things Paul told Timothy was, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). What does it mean to correctly handle the word of truth? It is not just a matter of understanding… Read more

In 2 Timothy 2:15, the Apostle Paul instructs Timothy, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” The Greek word orthotomeo, translated “correctly handle” or “rightly divide” in that verse, was used by the ancients in reference to the skillful use of tools. If you were to look back throughout Paul’s epistles, you would find how numerous times he had… Read more

By Dr. KP Yohannan, Founder and Director, Gospel for Asia In 2 Timothy 1:8, Paul tells young Timothy to “join with me in suffering for the gospel,” Paul’s life paved the way and sets the example for Timothy. And what an example it was! -What was the keeping power behind Paul’s courage? -How was he able to stand up again and again in the face of all the opposition that came his way? -How could he confidently plead with Timothy… Read more

Dr. KP Yohannan, Metropolitan – Discussing how to live by faith and see the visible and invisible In 2 Corinthians 4:17–18 Paul says, “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen… Read more

Dr. KP Yohannan: Chosing to be courageous There comes a time when our faith—our inner decisions and convictions—must be lived out in the moment of trial. Look throughout the Bible and you’ll find numerous men and women who, because of their faith in God, were full of courage and who did seemingly impossible things in their lifetime. From Esther risking her life for the justice of her people to Moses defying Pharaoh for the freedom of the children of God,… Read more

Abraham didn’t walk by faith to obtain the promised son until it became clear that walking by sight with his own plans guiding him just wouldn’t accomplish the purposes of God. God had promised Abraham and Sarah a son, and they had waited a long time for the fulfillment of that promise. As time went by, it seemed nothing was ever going to happen, and both of them grew impatient. This inspired Sarah to think of a plan: Abraham could… Read more

Discussing Faith. God’s very nature and character is faithfulness and goodness. He is always constant and true. So is His Word. Neither He nor His Word will ever change. “For I am the LORD, I do not change” (Malachi 3:6). And God watches over His Word to make sure it comes to pass. Isaiah 55:10–11 says, “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring… Read more

There is great significance in the way Paul introduces himself at the start of 2 Timothy: “an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God.” From the first letter he wrote to this his last, Paul knew this one thing: He was called by God. It was not man who called him. It was not the need that drove him. His ministry was not from himself or for himself. He is making this fact clear to Timothy, saying, “I… Read more

Discussing the “American Miracle” and our allegiance to it. In his new book Suicide of the West (2018), Jonah Goldberg’s first sentence reads, “There is no God in this book.” Defining his position further, he writes, “This book assumes that the Almighty does not guide human affairs…” That being said, I still found what he wrote to be both interesting and helpful. Goldberg contends that the history of man has not been all that pretty. In fact, life for the… Read more

I want to ask you a question: What is “normal”? Where do you and I get our view of what it means to be normal? And do our normal, day-to-day lives incorporate not just natural, human realities, but also the supernatural realities that Scripture talks about? Throughout the course of the journey the Lord has led us on, as a ministry—Gospel for Asia is 39 years old today—the Lord has continually called us to live by faith, which is a… Read more
