1 Timothy: Sound Doctrine + Sound Leadership + Sound Living = A Sound Church

5.19.19 - 1 Timothy 1:18-20

Every second of every minute of every day the church is engaged in a fight for the gospel. Yes, the King has come! Yes, He has lived for us, died for us, and been raised for us! Yes, He will come again, but until then we will find ourselves at war. The devil and his minions will seek our demise by working to move our attention away from God and His gospel. This fight will be fought at both the individual and corporate levels. We must not try to fight this fight alone. We need to covenant with other brothers and sisters in Christ and work together to both guard and promote the gospel in our church. We must fight this war together by proclaiming God's truth and living it out. The key to a healthy church is sound doctrine + sound living. We make war everyday against the evil one by proclaiming the gospel and living transformed lives. When the church is marked by sound doctrine and sound living it demonstrates to the watching world what it looks like to live with Jesus Christ as King! May the world hear us proclaim His excellencies and may they see our honorable conduct and good deeds and thus be moved by the Spirit to glorify God on the day of visitation (see 1 Peter 2:9, 12).
