1 Timothy 3:1-2 – Eldership in the Light of History

June 23, 2013

in 1 Timothy Study

Read 1 Timothy 3:1-2

Here in the third chapter of First Timothy we find listed for us the qualities of the overseer, the deacon, and the deaconess. These tasks are all important functions of the leadership to be found in the local church. The fact is that the Holy Spirit wants all three of these offices to be appointed in all the churches. If you read carefully, even now we need to be careful to appoint leaders as well, but leadership that has the necessary qualities in their lives to be useful to the Lord’s will.
