1 Timothy 1:1 – May 26, 2020
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God our Savior and the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope.

Apostle means “sent one.” Paul was on a mission from God, and it’s because of Jesus Christ, the anointed One’s promises that he embraces this calling. God called and gifted Paul to do His work and share His message. Who are we to say that God doesn’t call and commission people today? Of course, we should always be cautious and discerning; those in leadership must have proven their godly character and their ability to be used by God. They must also be confirmed by other godly leaders. Once this has been confirmed, we should encourage those called to a special mission. We should work alongside of them for the betterment of the Kingdom.

We stumble when we think the Church is ours to lead; it is Christ’s. He is our leader and guide and it is by His Spirit that we will have the discernment necessary to do what He has appointed us to do.
