    Pastoral Epistles: Paul’s Last Words; 2 Timothy 4 – Pastor David Schroeder

    While we do not know the Apostle Paul’s last spoken words, quite likely his last written words are found in 2 Timothy 4. How appropriate that at the end of his life, Paul continued his focus on his calling. He never disengaged from his life mission — to serve Christ and build people and the Church. What a great example to all of us, regardless of our age. Notice his priorities: 1) Declaring the word of God fearlessly, vv. 1-5; 16-17, 2) Finishing well, vv. 6-8; 18, 3) Mentoring and managing relationships, vv. 9-15; 19-22.

    Pastoral Epistles: Everyone has one. What’s YOUR scorecard say? – Pastor Scott Wilson
    What does your inner scorecard look like? 1 Timothy gives us an insight into what Paul was prioritizing and passing along to younger Timothy. Today in chapters 5 and 6 we will see what was valued (even timeless truths). We will also be given some stern warnings about what to avoid. So let's check in - what do we celebrate as a family? What does Timothy's scorecard imply about our own values? And while we are at it, let's make sure our "outer scoreboard" is not driving us.

    Pastoral Epistles: PRIORITIZE! – Pastor David Schroeder

    Focus, clarify, center, prioritize — this is what Martin Luther did as he studied Romans 1:17: For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith" (NIV).  Prioritizing the gospel sparked the Reformation five-hundred years ago this month. Prioritizing his life and ministry is also how Paul admonished Timothy in today’s text. Do not let personal convictions become your theology; 1 Timothy 4:1-6; Do not let your personal disciplines become your priority; 1Timothy 4:7-11; Do not let your age minimize your ministry; 1 Timothy 4:12-16; Be an example, Focus on the Scriptures, Use your spiritual gift

    Pastoral Epistles: Sola Ecclesia – Pastor David Schroeder

    What’s next? What’s the next huge tragedy to rock our country? Hurricanes and mass murders have taken center stage while terrorism and nuclear threat from rogue nations are lurking behind sheer curtains ready to destroy us. And every issue gets politicized to further divide and weaken our nation, which can’t even agree on how to honor our flag or national anthem.

    Meanwhile, followers of Jesus gather in small groups. They are the Church, the only eternal society on planet earth. Sola ecclesia — only the Church will survive, and that’s why we must observe our Master’s mandates for Church leadership. 1.The Creation Mandate; 2:11-15, 2. The Overseer Mandate; 3:1-7, 3. The Server Mandate; 3:8-13, 4. The Church Mandate; 3:14-16

    Pastoral Epistles: Why Would Anyone Want to be a Pastor? – Pastor David Schroeder
    For the next few months, we will learn from the Pastoral Epistles, 1&2 Timothy and Titus. These letters give us good insight into the priorities of a pastor, which should also help the church members know better how to function. Young, timid Timothy was left in Ephesus, the most pagan city of the New Testament era. (No wonder he had stomach problems and was told to drink wine!) Doctrinal and lifestyle deviance in the church challenged the young pastor, but the aged apostle’s humility set the right tone for effective ministry. Demand doctrinal purity, verses 3-7; Use the Law lawfully, verses 8-11; Remember grace and mercy, verses 12-17; Fight the good fight faithfully, verses 18-20
