Role Model

January 14, 2024

There's a letter in the New Testament called First Timothy. It was written by the Apostle Paul to his young protégé who was going to take over pastoring the church in Ephesus. Timothy was young, barely 30 years old, and quite inexperienced. But Paul lets him know that though you may be lacking in education or experience, the one thing you can always be is a role model. The main lesson I want us to take away from this message is our role for the next generation is to be a role model. We can do that in four ways, and we’re going to discuss each of those in detail.

Topics: Discipleship, Truth

Generational Discipleship

Over the course of four weeks, we are going to embark on an effort called “Generational Discipleship.” God is for all generations. There is no generation gap with God. He is faithful to every generation, but He also wants every generation to be faithful to Him, to know Him, love Him, serve Him, and worship Him. He wants every generation to always be sharing with the next generation the truth of the God of all generations. So what does that look like for us? That’s what we’re going to discuss in this series.

Bible Reference

Command and teach these things.
Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching.
Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you.
Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress.
Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.
