1 Timothy 2 & 3

1 Timothy 2 & 3

Paul takes time in chapters 2 & 3 to explain to Timothy the importance of worship and how the church should behave when it comes to corporate worship and church services. He also takes time to give standards for the pastors and deacons. The church leaders are not to be perfect, but they are held to a higher standard than others in the church. They need to be keenly aware of the high calling they have to lead the church.

These are key chapters that are always read to deacons and ministers at their ordinations. It’s a good guide to help understand the value Paul places on the church and its leaders. Ministry is not an easy task. It’s a calling. May we serve well. May we live in the grace of Jesus and follow his example of service.
