Practical Aspects to the Will of God
We often think of the Will of God as some deep secret that for some reason God is holding back from us. In our study of 1 Timothy chapter five we once again are confronted with the truth that the Word of God is the Will of God. Join us in the opening verses of chapter five to see God’s will for our lives laid out in easy to understand terms.
Exercising Yourselves Unto Godliness
The Apostle in 1 Timothy 4 tells us that physical exercise profits a little. His counsel to Timothy was to make sure that Timothy was exercising his spirit. The CDC tells us that 80% of Americans don't get the recommended amounts of exercise each week. It’s a sure bet that the numbers are even worse when it comes to those in the church getting their spiritual exercise. But how does one exercise themselves spiritually? Join us as the Apostle Paul lays out a clear path for developing yourself spiritually.
Description of a Servant
The Apostle Paul continues to lay out how a church is to be organized in chapter 3 of 1st Timothy. We move from the office of an elder to now the office of a deacon. Join us as he describes the character traits that must be present in a person’s life so that they might qualify to serve in the role of a deacon.
God’s Description of a Church Leader
Whenever a Church is looking for a new pastor, a Pulpit Search Committee throws around terms such as, “Visionary, Vision Caster, Dynamic, Charismatic." The focus much of the time is on ability rather than depth of character. Yet we find as the Apostle Paul describes a leader among God’s people, ability doesn’t seem to be his focus. Join us as we study 1 Timothy chapter 3 to discover what the Lord considers to be the most important qualities of a leader among His people.
There are millions of women and men that are silently dealing with the damage and devastation of abortion whether they truly agree with it or not. For many who have experienced it, the unseen wounds continue to wreak pain in their lives, affecting relationships, marriages and even the way they parent children later in life. Join us in a discussion as the Davis’ share their first hand experience with abortion and how they found a path to true healing.
The Role of Women in the Church
It seems that the church today views women’s involvement through two extreme lenses. One takes the approach that women are to be barefoot, pregnant, and hidden from sight. The other wants to turn the entire day to day operation of the church over their control. But once again we find a wonderful balance in the Word of God. Join us in our study of 1 Timothy, as we find clarity when it comes to the role of women in the church.
