1 Timothy 3:3–7
Don’t you love it when God spells out in an A-B-C-like fashion exactly what He wants? In those sections of Scripture there is rarely any wrangling about what is expected of us. Working hard to understand the original language or the ancient culture isn’t as necessary as a “just do it” attitude. First Timothy 3:1–7 is one such section. Last time we looked at the first two verses and seven character qualities every pastor and elder must demonstrate. This time we’ll explore seven more character traits (3:5–7). In these final verses Paul sets forth, in plain, uncomplicated language, the non-adjustable, non-alterable, essentials of God’s standard for church leadership.
