Setting the Standard (1 Tim. 4:11-16)

Worship 04-03-2016

How do you lead when you are not respected?  How does one go about earning respect?  How do you lead when you are the youngest leader in the room?  From what we can glean from the text, Timothy was the youngest leader and in many ways his leadership was not highly regarded.  Paul addresses this situation and we discover that his advice is that from which we could all learn.

    There is Still Hope
    Worship 03-27-2016 EasterThe resurrection of Jesus Christ has been called the "linchpin" of our faith.  It validates al that Jesus taught.  It gives hope and courage to weak hearts.  It reminds us that there is far more than just this live alone.  We will see in the life of just one person who failed Jesus, how resurrection was the key  to a complete about face in life, purpose and ministry.

    Worship 03-20-2016 Palm SundayThe celebratory parade we call the Triumphal Entry of Jesus was a short lived celebration.  In less than 24 hours Jesus was tearing up the temple courts and being challenged from every religious entity.  He was arrested about half way through the week and by Friday was dead.  It was not the celebration anyone had thought would take place.  In the middle of it all were two men who each in their own way failed Jesus.  Today we will consider some things we can learn as we look at their story.

    Always Prepared (1 Tim. 4:1-10)
    Presentation1The reason it is important to know how we should conduct ourselves in God’s Household is partially given in our passage today. As historically we move further from the cross, we also find that more and more people move closer to their own sense of truth. Many people preach a gospel of control and domination, disguised as accountability. Paul warns Timothy and us to keep our focus on Jesus.

    Proper Conduct in God’s Household (1 Timothy 3:14-16)
    Worship 03-06-2016Lately we have seen a public display of lack of civility. We each know there are certain things one should not say and certain ways people should be treated. That is not just true in the community but true in the church. Paul summarizes his letter to Timothy by reminding him of proper conduct and by reminding him who we serve to begin with. There are lessons for each one of us in these few verses.

    Servant Leadership (1 Timothy 3:8-13)
    In any group eventually there is a need for leadership and structure.  Sometimes that is a formal arrangement and other times it is an informal situation.  But eventually someone leads.  In the early church it seemsWorship 02-21-2016 that Deacons had the responsibility of caring for the physical and financial needs of people.  It also seems clear that men and women worked together in this endeavor.  In our passage we will examine the character qualities of a servant leader known as a Deacon.

    Leadership and Character (1 Tim. 3:1-7)
    Leadership and Character (1 Tim. 3:1-7)
    In this politically charged year we find ourselves thinking quite a bit about leadership. But in our culture we hear about things like foreign policy experience, how a person performed in a debate and does he or she “look presidential.” Rarely is there a word spoken about character. In God’s household those who would lead were examined not by their experience or their looks but by their character exhibited at home, in their house church, and in the community at large. In God’s economy character matters first.

    Empowered to Serve
    20160124When we are given all we need to do a task and the encouragement to do our best we call it being “empowered.” In our text today we find that Paul although not feeling worthy to serve God because of his past was shown grace and mercy and empowered to serve God. In turn he was empowering Timothy. Consider how God has gifted and empowered you.
