Sun. July 19, 2009 (Connie Siedler)

Connie Siedler continued our Timothy series by discussing the qualifications of church leaders (1 Timothy 3). The letter to Timothy is directed against false teachers, and describes the qualities and characteristics of sound leaders. These qualities include being temperate, having self-control, monogamy, an excellent reputation in the community and having the ability to teach. The characteristics of leaders are described, but this is not a detailed job description. Keeping hold of the mystery of faith and having a clear conscience are important. The expectation of Godly living is mentioned and this continues to be a challenge and something difficult to define. The idea of constant living with a spirit of generosity best describes what is needed in pursuing the “mystery of godliness.” (HN) Listen to the sermon audio MP3 recording from Sunday, July 19th, 2009 using your browser's preferred media player.
