A Blueprint for Deacons – 1 Timothy Ch3v8to13

A Blueprint for Deacons – 1 Timothy Ch3v8to13

This morning, Colin Adams continues the Blueprint series. This is the first of two planned sermons on a blueprint for deacons. Colin points out that in the first three chapters of 1st Timothy, Paul shows how the gospel produces godliness in the church. Chapter 1v1 to 2v7 focus on what the gospel is. Chapter2v8 to the end of chapter three, focus on the godliness it produces in men, women, and the leadership.

The requirements Paul lists for a deacon are a description of a mature Christian. Every Christian’s aim should be to develop that maturity.
