Next Gen

RE Verse reading–1 Timothy 4 (day seven)
“If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, brought up in the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed.”–v 6 (NIV).  Paul is proud of Timothy.  Proud of his work in Ephesus.  He has high hopes for this young pastor.  Part of Timothy’s preparation for ministry was his home.  “I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice.”–2 Timothy 1:5.  A 1st Century testimony to the value of “Next Gen” ministry!  At FBCSA, we believe that children and younth should SEE faith lived out in their parents, that one of our roles is to encourage and train parents to give this “clay-shaping” testimony.  Even without a Father’s influence, Timothy was prepared for ministry by his mother and grandmother.  He was “brought up in the truths of the faith”.
