10AM Sun 6/2/19 “Caring for His Church” – 1 Timothy 3 – – Pray for President Trump & America
It is sad when people are raised up in Christian ministry too soon after they are saved. They may be clever business people, or prominent citizens, or they may be talented entertainers, singers, musicians, artists or athletes; and when they come to Christ, and began to attend church people see how gifted they are, and immediately put them into a visible, public position. (1 Tim. 3) Talented new Christians are sometimes not given time to develop or mature, and quite often the result is that they are lifted up in pride. Christians need to give them a chance to become grounded in the faith before they are put into positions of leadership.
