1st Corinthians 3 and the Office of the Ministry

Before considering 1 Cor. 3:4–9, it helps to understand how Paul describes his own call at the beginning of the epistle. In the first two verses the apostle describes his particular call as a person sent according to God’s will (κλητὸς ἀπόστολος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ διὰ θελήματος θεοῦ) and the Corinthians’ call to be saints (ἡγιασμένοις ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ, κλητοῖς ἁγίοις) “together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” This early excerpt from the epistle demonstrates a distinction between Paul’s unique call from God into the apostolic ministry and the call that comes to all Christians, not to be apostles, but to be saints. 1,725 more words

1 Timothy 3 and the Office of the Ministry

In Paul’s epistle to Timothy, the apostle instructs his “child in the faith” (1:2) with caring for the church in Ephesus so he may “charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine” (1:3) other than what Paul himself had taught about Christ Jesus (1:15), and that he hold to the “faith and a good conscience” (1:19). 1,449 more words

Thoughts on Stewardship

In order to be generous, we must have something to give away. Thankfully, we’ve been blessed to live in a country where we have the luxury of asking, “How can I best use my resources to do the most good in the world?” Our culture has an open discussion on “giving back” and “paying it forward.” Our world has trained us to think of philanthropic and charitable terms. 608 more words
