Re: Verse reading–1 Timothy 3:1-13 (day five)
Paul goes into great detail in describing the qualifications and character traits for the servant/leaders of the church. He doesn’t mince words in his prescription or perspective. The result of this kind of outlined leadership leads to a church that is strong and visible. See verse 15- “which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth”. The church as a foundation will keep the true doctrines of the faith strong against heresy and withstand the tension that will always come from the surrounding culture. The church as a pillar will lift high the Name of Christ and the Truth of the Gospel. Great Privilege! Amazing Opportunity! Incredible Responsibility! May FBCSA be both strong and visible!
