I READ: 1 Timothy 3 and 4
Apostle Paul reminded Timothy to start involving the congregation in the Lord’s ministry. The goal was so they can be spiritually mature and that they won’t be affected by false teachings (1 Timothy 4:1-3). Ministers of God are more likely to attend services and be disciplined spiritually. They are trained in faith and are rooted in a local church. Apostle Paul explained other advantages when the congregation starts to minister: they will guard their lives so that they can become great examples to others, they will start to use all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and they will continuously be on guard until God comes back for the second time. Being in a ministry will help someone to guard their spirit so that it is continuously on fire.
I DECLARE: 1 Timothy 4:12 – Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
I DO: What actions am I going to take after meditating on the Word of God?
I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit
