1 Timothy 4:6–16
Let's see a show of hands. Who in their professional lives wants to be unsuccessful? No one, right? Most professions have a set of procedures—a list of dos and don'ts—that, if followed, promote success. Ministry is no different. Beginning in 1 Timothy 4:6 and continuing through the rest of the letter, Paul turns our attention to the one who seeks to be “a good servant of Christ Jesus,” namely, the minister. Paul starts off by outlining a list of dos and don'ts for effective ministry, focusing first on the pastor's personal ministry (1 Timothy 4:7–11) and then on the pastor's public ministry (4:12–16).
