A Helpful Vision
I Timothy 3: 1-13
Through Paul, God is offering Timothy and us a list of qualifications to provide us with a helpful vision of the ministry of life in the community of faith.
1. There are two kinds of communities: one that is wayward and one that follows the way of the Lord. The wayward communities are only concerned about themselves. In a community that follows the way of the Lord, the leader will control his concerns for himself and cultivate concerns for others. He will be hospitable , caring for God's Church, and have a good reputation among those outside the faith.
The difference between the two communities is the difference between a life of self-service and a life of self-sacrifice.
2. God offers us a vision of a community that grows through care and gracious conversation. Almost at the center of Paul's list of qualities is the ability to teach. (I Timothy 3:2). The ability to teach is listed among and related to other qualities that the pastor should possess. (I Timothy 3: 2-3) Teaching is best done in relation to the life of the teacher. When Jesus calls His disciples, He calls them not only to listen to Him but also to follow Him and to learn from His by participating in His ministry.
The life experience that lies at the heart of Christian teaching is that of salvation. "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." (I Timothy 1: 13-15) Through God's gracious work - forgiving sin and granting salvation - He prepares pastors to teach. They share with others this word of grace that saves.
God delivers people through Christ, who suffered the punishment of sin on the cross and rose from the grave to reveal His triumph over death and the devil. This victory is shared by messengers who are themselves recipients of grace and who speak in love (not anger) toward others.
