Sunday, September 17, 2006

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.
