Then make APPLICATION of this Chapter to my life

 Church Leadership
Today's Scripture:  1 Timothy 3

  

 

 

This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.1

 2A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

 3Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

 4One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

 5(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

 6Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

 7Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

 8Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

 9Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

 10And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.

 11Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

 12Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

 13For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

 14These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:

 15But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

 16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

 

 

 

Today's Scripture Meaning: 

The qualifications and behaviour of gospel bishops. (1-7) And of deacons and their wives. (8-13) The reason of writing about these, and other church affairs. (14-16)

Verses 1-7: If a man desired the pastoral office, and from love to Christ, and the souls of men, was ready to deny himself, and undergo hardships by devoting himself to that service, he sought to be employed in a good work, and his desire should be approved, provided he was qualified for the office. A minister must give as little occasion for blame as can be, lest he bring reproach upon his office. He must be sober, temperate, moderate in all his actions, and in the use of all creature-comforts. Sobriety and watchfulness are put together in Scripture, they assist one the other. The families of ministers ought to be examples of good to all other families. We should take heed of pride; it is a sin that turned angels into devils. He must be of good repute among his neighbours, and under no reproach from his former life. To encourage all faithful ministers, we have Christ's gracious word of promise, Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world, (Mt 28:20). And he will fit his ministers for their work, and carry them through difficulties with comfort, and reward their faithfulness.

Verses 8-13: The deacons were at first appointed to distribute the charity of the church, and to manage its concerns, yet pastors and evangelists were among them. The deacons had a great trust reposed in them. They must be grave, serious, prudent men. It is not fit that public trusts should be lodged in the hands of any, till they are found fit for the business with which they are to be trusted. All who are related to ministers, must take great care to walk as becomes the gospel of Christ.

Verses 14-16: The church is the house of God; he dwells there. The church holds forth the Scripture and the doctrine of Christ, as a pillar holds forth a proclamation. When a church ceases to be the pillar and ground of truth, we may and ought to forsake her; for our regard to truth should be first and greatest. The mystery of godliness is Christ. He is God, who was made flesh, and was manifest in the flesh. God was pleased to manifest himself to man, by his own Son taking the nature of man. Though reproached as a sinner, and put to death as a malefactor, Christ was raised again by the Spirit, and so was justified from all the false charges with which he was loaded. Angels ministered to him, for he is the Lord of angels. The Gentiles welcomed the gospel which the Jews rejected. Let us remember that God was manifest in the flesh, to take away our sins, to redeem us from all iniquity, and to purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These doctrines must be shown forth by the fruits of the Spirit in our lives.


Today's Scripture Application: 
  
Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the book of 1st Timothy with Chapter 3 and in our text we see Paul outlining the standards of church leaders as he says that those who desire these offices desire a good thing. In making application we see that leaders in the Church are to have a higher standard but that we should all strive to work in and through the Church. How about you? Are you apart of the local Church? Let us learn from our text today and the reminder of Paul to see that the leaders to our Churches are held to high standards but we are all to work within the Body of Christ doing the will of the Father.

The Power in Worship
Today's Scripture:  1 Timothy 2

  

 

 

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 1

 

 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 2

 

 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 3

 

 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 4

 

 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 5

 

 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 6

 

 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. 7

 

 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 8

 

 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 9

 

 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.10

 

 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 11

 

 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 12

 

 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 13

 

 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 14

 

 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.15

 

 

Today's Scripture Meaning: 

Prayer to be made for all persons, since the grace of the gospel makes no difference of ranks or stations. (1-7) How men and women ought to behave, both in their religious and common life. (8-15)

Verses 1-7: The disciples of Christ must be praying people; all, without distinction of nation, sect, rank, or party. Our duty as Christians, is summed up in two words; godliness, that is, the right worshipping of God; and honesty, that is, good conduct toward all men. These must go together: we are not truly honest, if we are not godly, and do not render to God his due; and we are not truly godly, if not honest. What is acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, we should abound in. There is one Mediator, and that Mediator gave himself a ransom for all. And this appointment has been made for the benefit of the Jews and the Gentiles of every nation; that all who are willing may come in this way, to the mercy-seat of a pardoning God, to seek reconciliation with him. Sin had made a quarrel between us and God; Jesus Christ is the Mediator who makes peace. He is a ransom that was to be known in due time. In the Old Testament times, his sufferings, and the glory that should follow, were spoken of as things to be revealed in the last times. Those who are saved must come to the knowledge of the truth, for that is God's appointed way to save sinners: if we do not know the truth, we cannot be ruled by it.

Verses 8-15: Under the gospel, prayer is not to be confined to any one particular house of prayer, but men must pray every where. We must pray in our closets, pray in our families, pray at our meals, pray when we are on journeys, and pray in the solemn assemblies, whether more public or private. We must pray in charity; without wrath, or malice, or anger at any person. We must pray in faith, without doubting, and without disputing. Women who profess the Christian religion, must be modest in apparel, not affecting gaudiness, gaiety, or costliness. Good works are the best ornament; these are, in the sight of God, of great price. Modesty and neatness are more to be consulted in garments than elegance and fashion. And it would be well if the professors of serious godliness were wholly free from vanity in dress. They should spend more time and money in relieving the sick and distressed, than in decorating themselves and their children. To do this in a manner unsuitable to their rank in life, and their profession of godliness, is sinful. These are not trifles, but Divine commands. The best ornaments for professors of godliness, are good works. According to St. Paul, women are not allowed to be public teachers in the church; for teaching is an office of authority. But good women may and ought to teach their children at home the principles of true religion. Also, women must not think themselves excused from learning what is necessary to salvation, though they must not usurp authority. As woman was last in the creation, which is one reason for her subjection, so she was first in the transgression. But there is a word of comfort; that those who continue in sobriety, shall be saved in child-bearing, or with child-bearing, by the Messiah, who was born of a woman. And the especial sorrow to which the female sex is subject, should cause men to exercise their authority with much gentleness, tenderness, and affection. 

 

 

Today's Scripture Application: 
  
Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the book of 1st Timothy with Chapter 2 and in our text we see Paul giving instructions for the Church and instructions about worship as reminds the body of Christ to gather, pray, give thanks, and lift us the truth of Jesus-Christ so that all men will be drawn unto Him. In making application we see the same instruction is relevant today as we are to assemble ourselves together, pray, and worship Jesus-Christ as to strengthen the body, lifting up Christ so that all may be saved. How about you? Do you see the power of Worship? Let us learn from our text today and the instruction of Paul to not forsake the assembling of ourselves but rather - gather, pray, and praise the Lord so that others may see Him in His Glory and be saved.
