Relating to Other Christians – 1 Timothy 5:1-2

Dealing with other people isn’t always easy. But it is necessary in the church, especially for those who preach. In 1 Timothy 5, Paul gives some instruction to the young evangelist in how to relate to Christians of different ages and genders, and we would all do well to pay attention to it.

Fear Leads to Denial – Luke 22:54-62

Despite Peter’s courage at moments prior to the trial of Jesus, he is overcome with fear as Jesus stands before the High Priest. Though he had said he was willing to die for Jesus, and even tried to kill for Him, when he was given the opportunity to stand up and defend the Savior, Peter backed down out of fear.

Love and Truth – 1 John 4:7-12

In a time when we are riddled with division and lies, now more than ever Christians need to make sure we are people who are dedicated to both love and the truth. We cannot be the salt of the earth and the light of the world if we are not loving, nor can we fulfill that calling if we are overcome by lies. It’s time for the church to decide what influence we want to leave on the world.

Fulfill Your Ministry – 1 Timothy 4:11-16

– 1/3/21 p.m. sermon
– Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
– Parts of Paul’s letter to Timothy are very personal, and are a great source of understanding what should be expected of preachers.  Our study in these verses considers these words to the young preacher, but also to understand how they can apply to all Christians in our own respective ministries.
