Be An Exmple

This is about Wayne's preaching on Sunday. The first peice of scripture we will look at 1 Timothy 4:11: "11 Command and teach these things." I believe that this really means Speak with authority. Paul is saying that Timothy's ministry should be with authority. This is counter-cultural.

The next peice we will look at is: "12 Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." If you do not go to Grace Church, This reference of scripture is what we call our Highschool Group, 4:12. Prove yourself of

godliness by living a pure life.

My computer is having troubles. next point: "13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching." Do exactly that. Devote yourself to the Lord's word. and devote yourself to him. The rest of the teaching: "14 Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you. 15 Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress. 16 Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers."
