1 Timothy 3 – The Company of the Committed

August 25, 2013

in 1 Timothy Study

Read 1 Timothy 3

It is here where the Holy Spirit wants us to carefully consider the qualities of people who lead us. In the first part of this chapter He wants us to pay attention to the overseers. Now as we get to the middle of the chapter He wants us to know there is more care to be exerted when we choose deacons. People of quality should be among the “company of the committed”. People who will take the lead in the practical aspects of ministry so that we might follow them in righteous acts. Doing the work of ministry is what deacons are all about, and on the way keeping us all focused on living out our calling as well.
