This audio series studies the letters the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy in his final ministry to the gentiles. These lessons look at the proper doctrine that Christians should follow. We find that having the right doctrine makes our walk with the Lord more gratifying than being out of step with what He wants you to do. Clearly sound doctrine is very important to our proper Christian walk. Our walk should be based on our calling from God vs. what we think it is from our own imaginations. The goal with our walk should be to grow into a perfect man as it says in Ephesians 4:13 ”Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:”. We do that with proper doctrine.
Timothy Study - Part 11. As Christians, we have the responsibility daily to provide encouragement by sharing the love of God. The lesson on May 6, 2007 provides a review of the lesson regarding widows but then picks up to study the passages on Elders in verse 17. 1 Timothy 5:17 says “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.” Elders are particularly qualified to teach the word of God and that’s why it is important that the qualifications that God established when selecting an elder in the church are followed.
