This week, when we gathered, Tracy M. taught from 1 Timothy 3:8-13. Deacons are a position of service within the church. Those who are qualified to ‘deacon’ attain for themselves a future standing and assurance in Christ Jesus.

Next Sunday, Tracy M. will continue teaching through 1 Timothy 3:14-16.

Last Sunday, as we gathered, Shannon S. taught us from 1 Timothy 3:1-7. The ultimate qualification of a pastor is the approval of the Holy Spirit as demonstrated in the life of the candidate in his maturity, temperance, and exercise of his gifts by serving, teaching, and shepherding—not for gain or prestige but for love of ministering to the saints. This approval is therefore evidenced by his blamelessness in his own home, before men of good conscience in the church, and even in a good reputation among the heathen.

Next week, Tracy M. continues teaching through "Paul's Personal Epistles" when he teaches from 1 Timothy 3:8-13.

This week when we gathered, Mael D. taught us from 1 Timothy 2:1-7. Paul now introduces practical ways believers can be good stewards of the gospel. In 1 Tim 2:1-7 we see that God calls us to pray for all men and in particular for the ones that are in authority over us. These prayers are motivated by the gospel itself, for God "desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of truth," and have as a result "a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence."

Next week, Mael D. will continue the series in "Paul's Personal Epistles" when he teaches from 1 Timothy 2:8-15.
