1 Timothy 6:11-16 - What Is A Good Pastor?




What is a good pastor? Is it his use of humor? Is it the way he programs Sunday services? As Paul closes his letter to Timothy and the church in Ephesus, he charges Timothy to pastor the church of Ephesus well. He details what it will take to him to be a good pastor. What we learn is not just what it takes to be a good pastor but what it takes for anyone in the church leading a ministry to do it well for God's honor and glory.

1 Timothy 1:1-11 - Don't Take Your Eyes Off Jesus




What is the latest popular Christian book you read? Was it
The Four Blood Moons? Was it Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo? While these types of books are engaging, they lead us toward speculation instead of Jesus. In the opening verses of Paul's letter to Timothy, he warns Timothy—and us—about the danger of becoming captivated by theological fantasies and being distracted from Jesus.

John 13:1-17 - Scandalous Love



On October 2, 2006, Charles Roberts burst into an Amish one-room schoolhouse in Lancaster Pennsylvania. He shot ten girls, ages 6-13, killing five, before committing suicide. Incidents like this make the news, but what kept this in the news was the response of the Amish. The Amish visited Charles Roberts family after the shooting to tell them they were extended forgiveness. Members of the Amish community visited Charles Roberts widow, parents and parents-in-law to comfort them in their loss. One Amish father held Charles Roberts' sobbing father in his arms for an hour. The Amish even set up a charity fund for Charles Robert's widow and children. Over 30 Amish attended Charles Roberts' funeral. When does this kind of love come from? It is scandalous. When the Amish were asked how they could forgive and love, they only had one name,… Jesus.
