Sunday Morning Worship (9:30 AM)

Sermon Text (1 Timothy 4:6-10):

[6] If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed. [7] Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; [8] for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. [9] The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance. [10] For to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe. (ESV)

This Lord’s day’s morning service is going to be online-only (no in-person gathering). See below for the link to the live-stream of our service.

We are getting back into our sermon series through the book of 1 Timothy. We will begin looking at 1 Timothy 4:6-10, where Paul teaches Timothy what it means to be “a good servant of Christ Jesus.” This is important both for pastors (and aspiring pastors) as well as church members. After all, what are we as believers to look for in a pastor? In many ways Paul answered that question for us in the previous chapter (v.1-7). But in addition to that, what are we to expect from our pastors in their ministry to us? Paul paints a brief but helpful picture of pastoral ministry for us in this passage (and really throughout the pastoral epistles).

This Sunday we will be looking at v.7-8, where Paul instructs Timothy to train himself for godliness. What does this mean, and why is it so important?

We hope that you will join us online for worship this Sunday! See our YouTube channel for the live video feed starting @ 9:30 AM (PST).
