Pastor Ryan’s sermon series “The Flawed Yet Faithful” looks at a few of the people on the list of the “faithful” in chapter 11 of the book of Hebrews. Sometimes this list is called “The Heroes of the Faith”. Each of them was flawed but used by God in mighty ways. What can we learn from them so that God can also use us in spite of our flaws?
The book of 1 Timothy is a letter from the Apostle Paul to a young man named Timothy. It gives Timothy instructions for instructing the leadership of the local church in Ephesus. But church leadership is not just for the pastor. Deacons and other ministry leaders are chosen from within the church body. Timothy’s instructions apply to everyone in the church who might ever be a leader, or worshiper, of any sort — which is all of us.
Pastor Ryan walks us through the book of 1 Timothy, including the controversial parts. What can we learn from Paul’s letter for our church today?
