who leads...

April 4, 2012

1 Timothy 3:2 Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach

I love how God has everything set here. He has left no room for doubt on who the leaders of His church should be and how they should act. He has given a very detailed list for churches to look to when looking for a pastor. This letter was of course written to Timothy but ultimately it was for us, God’s church, to use when we are selecting the men who will lead us. This “list” that God has given is important. If it wasn’t, He would not have inspired Paul to write them. When even one of these qualifications is missing in the life of a leader, the church cannot function as God intended. I think it’s safe to say that when God gives us a list we should make sure that we follow it
