Daily Worship - Tuesday, 10/24/2023

Prepare:

Psalm 2:1-12

 

Read

1 Timothy 3:1-4:16

 

Think

Most Bible scholars believe Paul uses the terms overseer, elder, and pastor interchangeably, differentiating that office of teaching and authority from the office of deacon. Reflect on the list of qualifications for overseers. Compare that list to the qualifications for deacons—ministering servants. Why do you think Paul refers to the church as a “pillar and buttress of the truth”? V. 16 was likely an early Christian confession; it is beautiful. Timothy’s high calling to protect the church from false teaching and harm is clear in ch. 4. His youth should not hinder him (v. 12). Our worship services at Faith seek to uphold v. 13. How will his teaching “save” his hearers?

 

Pray

Pray for our Elder Council, including our pastors. Pray for our ministering servants (such as our Ministry Team leaders and their teams). Ask God to help us keep his word central and so protect us from the harm of false teaching. Pray for our youth!

  

Sing

Elder serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. Isaac Watt's poetic setting of Psalm 23 Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us, captures the tender love of the Good Shepherd for his flock.
