    The Audible Bible 1 Timothy Chap 6- Philemon, God Trains Leaders, God of Freedom

    in Social Networking

    The 1s and the 2nd and Titus Epistles of Paul present God Trains Leaders. Paul wrote these epistles directing to Timothy teaching on how a leader should be concerning the affairs of the Kingdom of God. Paul two letters, 1st and 2nd Timothy were written purposely to help Timothy become an effective leader. Paul advised that Timothy had already received most of the training he needed from his mother and grandmother, but just need to remain in the faith and the training he received from his parents and from what God has revealed to him through the studying of the word. Paul letters to Timothy advised how an effective leader should be; therefore, anyone who desires to be a great leader, one who is centered in God and have a heart for the people he or she is leading should be aware of the training of 1st and 2nd Timothy.

    Following 2nd Timothy, Paul addressed Titus “a true son in our common faith:” as you read through the 1st chapter, he presented specific instruction on how the leader should be. For example in Titus 1:7, he said, “For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.”

    Following Titus, Philemon presents “God of Freedom. It does not matter what seems to enslave you; what matters most is that when you meet the God of Freedom, you have no choice but to be free. Consider each one as brother and sister; release, let go and let God! That is the only way we will experience God’s kind of freedom. Be free!
