Dear CrossPointe, I’m really looking forward to diving into our text this week, 1 Timothy 6:1–10. The primary thrust of this passage is contentment in Christ in a culture of consumerism. If that was an issue for Christians in the first century, how much more so for us! Take some time to read the text before Sunday. Be careful not to think about other people w...

Dear CrossPointe, Our text this Sunday, 1 Timothy 5:17–25, contains Paul’s instructions to Timothy about honoring leaders while keeping them accountable. There is a beautiful gospel-balance in Paul’s words: leaders are to be respected, but they are in no way above anyone else. In fact, they are to be held to a stricter standard in many ways. And, because...

Dear CrossPointe, I’m looking forward to this Sunday! Our text this week, 1 Timothy 4:6–16, is one of those passages that has been life-shaping for me in pastoral ministry. In an age dominated by pragmatism and gimmicks, Paul exhorts Timothy to faithfully plod along, striving and toiling to make much of Jesus and teach all the good doctrine that flows from the...

Dear CrossPointe, This week we’ll be in 1 Timothy 4:1–5, in which Paul turns his attention again to false teachers who are troubling the church. In this case, some are forbidding marriage and the consumption of certain foods in order to attain a higher form of spirituality, which has led some to depart the faith. In the end, Paul condemns this false teaching a...

Dear CrossPointe, “Imperfect as it is, it is the dearest place on earth to us.” This is how Charles Spurgeon described the church in a sermon preached in 1861. Our text this week, 1 Timothy 3:14–16, gives us a glimpse of why the church should be so dear to Christians. Paul describes it as the household of God, where the living God dwells, upon which the ...

Dear CrossPointe, Our text this week, 1 Timothy 3:8–13, is a continuation of Paul’s qualifications for church leadership, specifically the role of deacons. A deacon is a servant of the church, tasked with caring for the logistical and physical needs of the congregation, which in turn paves the way for the ministry of the Word. While this text addresses the sp...

Dear CrossPointe, Paul’s first letter to Timothy is more than just instructions on how to organize and lead a local church. Beyond the practical instruction is a glimpse into the purpose and plan of God to display his glory to an onlooking world through the church. So, the ‘how’ and ‘who’ of church leadership is critically important. That is ...

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we tackle a controversial text, 1 Timothy 2:8–15, which deals with the role and comportment of men and women in the life of the local church. To say this text is disputed is an understatement! Much ink has been spilled over this paragraph. But just because something is controversial does not mean we should avoid it. In fact, the truths...
