We might assume that in order to become a successful leader, we need superior gifts, strong management skills, and a winning personality. But according to the book of Timothy, the qualifications for leadership are quite different. We’ll explore the requirements for elders on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg! More
Household of Faith, Volume 1For many, the Church is merely a gathering of people participating in religious activities. But the Bible makes clear that what God desires is a relationship with His children. When individuals grasp the immensity of God’s grace and respond in faith, they are born again by His Spirit and are incorporated into the Household of Faith. In this series, Alistair Begg explores the first five chapters of 1Timothy, noting how keen Paul was to ensure that Timothy fulfilled his duties with moral integrity and Biblical authority. Recognizing that godly leadership was vital for the progress of the Church, Paul warned Timothy of false teachers and provided instructions for the proper conduct of God’s people in God’s household. When Christians have a proper sense of God and refuse to compromise, our lives will reflect Him, our service will glorify Him, our worship will please Him, and generations to come will be grounded in His Truth.
Household of Faith, Volume 2Since the early days of Christianity, false teachers have sought to water down the Gospel and use it for their own glory and financial gain. While money and wealth are not necessarily evil, they can become idols, distracting our focus from God, granting a false sense of security, and inclining us to the appeal of false teaching. In Volume 2 of the Household of Faith series, Alistair Begg completes the study of 1 Timothy, addressing the various responsibilities and risks of church leadership. He notes that great care and wisdom must be exercised in the choosing of leaders because they can either establish a pattern of spiritual maturity in the congregation or contribute to the downfall of the church. Central to the preservation of the Church is the necessity to maintain the purity of the Gospel and pass it on to future generations. Christian maturity and contentment come as we trust God’s providence and provision, understanding that it is by God’s grace and enabling that we enter into the Household of Faith.
