Every Member a Minister

Every Member a Minister

Nov 12, 2017

Passage: 1 Timothy 5:1-16

Preacher: Allen Duty

Series: Fight the Good Fight: The Pastoral Epistles

Category: Sunday Morning

Keywords: ministry, multigenerational, widows


This week we're covering 1 Timothy 5:1-16 in a message called, "Every Member a Minister." The vast majority of the passage deals with widows - which ones qualify for assistance from the church, and which ones qualify to serve in an official capacity on behalf of the church.

It's one of those texts that a lot of our members/visitors might read over and say, "What does this have to do with me/us? We don't even have any widows at New Life."

But of course, by the time you encounter any situation for the first time, it's already too late to start preparing for it. This passage will remind us that we need to be engaged in ministering to and receiving ministry from all stages of life in the church body. By God's grace, that will prepare us to best serve people who are different than us when needs arise.

We learned that in the church family, every member is a minister.
