1 Timothy, Day 3 Readings

The Role of the Minister   

Today's reading offers instructions for how Timothy is to act as a minister in the congregation.  He is to prevent false teaching and practices from taking hold in the congregation and set a personal example of godliness for everyone else.  His main responsibilities are in the reading of the Bible, preaching and teaching the doctrines and practices of faith.  More than anything, a good minister focuses on these things so that people have a good foundation for their faith.

Read 1 Timothy 4:1-16  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
