1 Timothy 6
by Audrey Rogers on September 30th, 2020
1 Timothy 6:6Godliness with contentment is great gain. Discontentment says, “In order to be happy, I need more!” However, Paul says, “Those who have enough, do have more.” It’s an attitude thing. If you don’t appreciate the little that you’ve got, you won’t appreciate it when it grows. Because you take your attitude with you. Contentment allows you to say, “I have enough.” And you can’t say that u...
1 Timothy 5
by Audrey Rogers on September 29th, 2020
1 Timothy 5:14Give the adversary no occasion for slander. Paul encourages us, as representatives of the gospel, to consider living your life in such a way that doesn’t invite slander. You might choose to do something based on your preference or freedom, but Paul constantly reminds us to be thoughtful of what appearances may bring. As Christians, you will have your critics in life. They will take a...
1 Timothy 4
by Audrey Rogers on September 28th, 2020
1 Timothy 4:16Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching.This verse is a critical call to self-care. When you’re in the ministry you love taking care of others. But if that’s all you’re doing you won’t be doing it for long. You’re liable of burning out, or, God-forbid, suffering a moral failure. To the extent that you watch your ministry, make sure to watch yourself. If you hold others acc...
1 Timothy 3
by Audrey Rogers on September 25th, 2020
1 Timothy 3:1The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Have you ever felt guilty for having a noble aspiration? Oh, I shouldn’t think of myself in such terms. I’m probably just being vain. So, to get in touch with our humility again, we suppress our “lofty thinking.” That is why I find it refreshing that Paul encourages noble aspirations. If...
1 Timothy 2
by Audrey Rogers on September 24th, 2020
1 Timothy 2:3This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. God has desire. Think of that. He craves, He longs, He thirsts. He wants people to be saved. He wants people to know who He is. And that extends to every soul on the planet. And sometimes desire can lead to pain, especially if it goes unmet. Th...
1 Timothy 1
by Audrey Rogers on September 23rd, 2020
1 Timothy 1:15The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the foremost. If you know you’re a failure—good news, Jesus came for you! However, if you’ve got it all put together and abide perfectly by the rules—Jesus passes you by. Cause you don’t need any help. So, what will it be? Are you going to be self-sufficient ...
