In 1 Timothy 3, some of the first penned words we find, “Whoever aspires”. Pastor Doug in the message he delivered calls out those who aspire. Those who aspire to lead in service of Jesus. But not only for our present church, but to train those who will take the reins in the upcoming generation. See if Pastor gets you to bookmark this as a favorite chapter of yours personally!
To prepare yourself for this message read Nehemiah. Also recall that before any major decision in Jesus’ ministry, you found Jesus praying.
1 Timothy 3:1-13
Here is a trustworthy saying: Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task.2 Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full[a] respect. 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take オンライン カジノ care of God’s church?)6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. 7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.
8 In the same way, deacons[b] are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. 9 They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. 10 They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.
11 In the same way, the women[c] are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything.
12 A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well. 13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.
In this message, Pastor Doug presents SBC with the following challenge found in 1 Timothy 2:9:
8 Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. 9 I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes,10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
11 A woman[a] should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b] she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women[c] will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
Pastor starts off with qualities (prayer, holy deed, without rather, and do not doubt God) of a man that will take a ministry to great heights. He then moves into instruction for women in that “bling” isn’t wrong, but shouldn’t take priority. Priority of good works, strong spirit (Godly character), education (Godly understanding and intellect of this world) is the focus of this scripture.
So lets dive into this and find Pastor Doug taking a bold and yet very balanced approach to this difficult area of the Scripture.
If I were to ask why pastor started off by quoting Warren W. Wiersbe with
The organism must be organized
I would imagine he would answer by saying, “Dr. Wiersbe is a pastor of ‘pastors’ to speak.” See Warren wrote The Bible Exposition Commentary: An Exposition of the New Testament Containing the Entire “BE” Series
This explanation buy viagra online flows perfectly into how pastor reveals and expounds upon the church offices.
Also, if you”re interested Pastor remarks on Church Numerology. We aren”t talking astrology here. We are talking Biblical Numerology. Here’s a link with some more information: https://carm.org/what-biblical-numerology
