A Hope, a House, a Hymn


From: £1.50


1 Timothy 3:14–16

We could consider 1 Timothy the handbook on biblical ministry within the church. It’s filled with practical dos and don’ts. The first half of the letter, chapters 1–3, focuses on the work of ministry—the duty of the pastor (1:3–20), the priority of prayer (2:1–8), the role of women (2:9–15), the qualifications for elders (3:1–7), and the qualifications for deacons (3:8–12). The second half of the letter, chapters 4–6, focuses on the workman who performs ministry—the shepherd. The interlude between these two halves (3:14–16) focuses on the why of ministry—the heart and soul.
