A True Son in the Faith
1 Timothy 1:1-2
Part #1 "A True Son in the Faith"
This Sunday we began our new sermon series called “God's Blueprint for the Church.” Our 1st message introduced us to Timothy. For the next few weeks we will carefully study 1 Timothy; a marvelous letter.
Centuries ago, an older man wrote a letter to a younger man who faced the challenging task of leading and putting things in order at the church the older man had planted.That letter is called 1 Timothy.
While it cannot be called "The Complete Pastor's Instruction Manual," it's the closest thing biblically-along with the other Pastoral Letters-that we have.
Paul preferred doing face-to-face instruction for Timothy and the Ephesian church but in case of a delay, he told Timothy, "I am writing these things to you so that, if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth" (1 Timothy 3:14-15 ESV).
With a gospel foundation, 1 Timothy teaches us about the church's corporate life. It is a book that provides for us a "blueprint" for how the church should function.
