How Do Shepherds Serve Sheep Without Getting Sheared?
What advice would you give to a young minister
whose congregation despised his youth, put up with
false teachers, and failed to behave properly in church?
1 Timothy 4:14-16 adds five more commands, from a
seasoned mentor to his 1st mate, to deal with this very
real situation in a 1st century local church.
This Bible passage reminds us that God has given us
church leaders for a reason and that they are a vital
part of God’s plan to give us all a “makeover” here and
in the hereafter.
