January 9, 2022 Speaker: Paul Sanders Series: Individual Messages

Topic: Elders Passage: 1 Timothy 3:1–3:7

1 Timothy 3:1-7

 

Christ wants men who have desire for the work instead of the desire for status

 

Christ wants elders who are godly.

 

Christ wants elders who are able to teach.

 

Christ wants elders to have godly homes and families

 

Christ wants elders to be spiritually mature and not recent converts

 

Christ wants elders whose moral reputation is good with the local community (including non-Christians)

 

L. Duncan wrote,

“Paul knows that the front line of evangelism as the church goes into the world is not our strategies, methods or techniques. The front line of evangelism is our holiness.”

 

Jesus is the elder you desperately need
