Under Gods Command

1 Timothy 6:20-21 Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care.  Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have wandered from the faith.  Grace be with you.      

The book of 1st Timothy provides guiding principles for local churches, including rules for public worship and qualifications for overseer (elders, pastors), deacons, and special church workers (widows).  Paul tells the church leaders to correct incorrect doctrine and to deal lovingly and fairly with all people in the church.  The church is not organized simply for the sake of organization, but so that Christ can be honored and glorified.

 Lets Bring it Home:  While studying these guidelines, don’t lose sight of what is most important in the life of the church-knowing God, working together in loving harmony, and taking God’s good News to the world.
