1 Timothy 5:17-25 (1 Timothy 5:17-25)

Peter Edbury, 7th July 2019
Part of the 1 Timothy series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

Paul is advising Timothy on how to be a good pastor. Clearly there have been problems in the church. Sadly we all hear stories of the moral failings of people in leadership in church, and so it is imperative that we pray for those in our own church with leadership or pastoral responsibilities.

1 Timothy 5:17–25 (Listen)

17 Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching. 18 For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer deserves his wages.” 19 Do not admit a charge against an elder except on the evidence of two or three witnesses. 20 As for those who persist in sin, rebuke them in the presence of all, so that the rest may stand in fear. 21 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of the elect angels I charge you to keep these rules without prejudging, doing nothing from partiality. 22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, nor take part in the sins of others; keep yourself pure. 23 (No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.) 24 The sins of some people are conspicuous, going before them to judgment, but the sins of others appear later. 25 So also good works are conspicuous, and even those that are not cannot remain hidden.
