Hope you are having a good week.
Why Should We Read The Bible?
Christians go back to the Old Testament to build a bigger and better picture of Jesus Christ. By connecting with his past, we connect better with him and deepen our love for him. The Old Testament connects us with Jesus’ past in the following ways:
The point is that God is the one who is still using his creative power. God is still the one who is strong and in charge, and he’s also commissioned his people to continue to be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth with his glory.
Friend, may you be encouraged by these five ways Jesus works in and through marriage.
It is likely that Paul adds a word about sexual purity because there is a particular pitfall that is all too common—sexual immorality. A pastor who has learned the art of communicating with warmth and compassion can easily find himself in a situation of emotional connection with a woman that he ought not have such a connection with. And so Paul says that there must be no hint of impropriety in his ministry to younger women.
May I suggest that what the church needs today is not more leaders, but more godly leaders?
