1 Timothy (Program #11) – Dealing with Slaves and Money Lovers

The apostle Paul repeatedly recommended his disciple Timothy, to healthy words or healthy teachings. But we all have the experiences of seen the televangelist or hearing radio preachers that gave us the distinct sense that this was not healthy but rather was more in the realm of money loving or pride.

Today’s life study from 1Timothy chapter 6 will talk about pride and profit, connecting the different teachings with the money lovers.

1 Peter (Program #25) – The Elders’ Shepherding and Its Reward (2)

We all know that Peter was first a disciple of the Lord Jesus.  A disciple is a follower, a learner.  Then Peter received the commission from the Lord and became chief among the apostles.  An apostle in the New Testament is a sent one.  It’s in this capacity that Peter is most often referred to.  But in addition to being a disciple and an apostle, Peter was also an elder of the church in Jerusalem.  It is in this status as an elder that Peter writes to the other elders in his first epistle.

Elders are the overseers of the church and as Paul also tells us, these are the leading ones who has been charged by the Lord with a solemn and sober responsibility to care for His most precious possessions, that is His people, the flock of God.  It’s in this charge that Peter brings the attention of all the elders past, present and future that their responsibility must extend even to the risk of their own lives.
