That's What Friends Are

That's What Friends Are

While on house arrest in Rome, Paul was cared for by two friends, Timothy and Epaphroditus, brothers in Christ who displayed the characteristics that Christian servants today should strive to emulate. They were available to serve the Lord by serving others with humility. They were sensitive to the Spirit and the Word of God and demonstrated a genuine interest in the well-being of others above selfish interests. Timothy and Epaphroditus were reliable and followed through with their commitments.

Jars Of Clay

We live in a world that is preoccupied with personality, and the influence of high-profile celebrities has a significant impact on the way people think and live. In contrast to this cult of human personality, the Bible is filled with examples of how God delights in using ordinary people in extraordinary ways.

These studies recount the lives of biblical characters that were used by God much like a clay pot in the hands of its maker. Some will be familiar and others will be new found friends. Through them we’ll discover the characteristics which mark useful people and see the potential of an "ordinary" person who is taken up and used by God for His eternal purposes -- like a jar of clay.
