THE GREAT RESPONSIBILITY OF THE MINISTER

Devotional for August 5, 2021


Morning: 2 Timothy 2:15

Noon: Psalm 97

Evening: 1 Timothy 4: 6-11



What a huge responsibility God has placed on the shoulders of each minister of the Gospel! So we should not be surprised to see the way that Paul persuades Timothy to be faithful in the job that had been entrusted to him as teacher of the entire counsel of God. The Lord Jesus Christ will come and evaluate the work of his servants, therefore, Timothy could not be careless in the faithful performance of what was entrusted to him.


Ministers were not called by God to entertain the brothers and sisters of the church, neither to impose personal views on the rest of the people. We have been endowed with God’s authority to present clearly the way in which His people should walk. There is no greater privilege than ours, but neither a greater commitment. The Word of God regulates basically all aspects of the believers’ life, from one’s familial relationships to one’s most intimate motivations. The faithful minister will not overlook any of these things, but rather will make an effort to adjust the minds of those who compose his congregation to what God has revealed in his Word.


-Antonio Corrales


In the fight against apostasy, good ministers of Christ are the special instruments that God uses.



 

Morning: 2 Timothy 2:15

15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.



Noon: Psalm 97

1 The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O Lord.

9 For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

10 Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

12 Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.



Evening: 1 Timothy 4: 6-11

6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.

7 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.

10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

11 These things command and teach.
