1 Timothy 5:17-25 – Honoring God in Our Care for Elders

First of all, look at the first directive in verses 17-18. This is a direction that Paul gives about the support of the ministry of the church. He says to Timothy that pastor/elders are to be cared for generously. He’s talking about the honor and the material support of hardworking pastors/elders in the church, and he says the elders who rule well are to […]

1 Timothy 5:1-16 – Honoring God in Our Care for One Another

David Lloyd-George once said, “The true test of a civilization is the way it treats its old people.” A U.S. News & World Report (4/3/81) article uncovered the ugly fact of brutality against the aged by their own families: Each year, perhaps a million elderly Americans—or about 1 out of every 25—are abused by relatives….

His disciples were going to take the Passover meal with Him in Jerusalem. They didn’t realize it would be the last time they would take the Passover meal with Him.

1 Timothy 3:1-7: God’s Good Design for Elders

Now, you may be wondering: why, when there are people who are without Christ, who haven’t heard the gospel, why would we spend an entire message about elders?

1 Timothy 2:8-15: God’s Good Design

Is there any one aspect of human life that has affected every other aspect of human life more than being male or female? While my life is certainly not reducible to being a man, everything about my life is shaped by the fact that I am male, not female.  My wife’s whole life is shaped […]
