1 Timothy 4-5


Interpretation: These chapters are basic instructions on how members of the church should act. Through this instruction, the author is encouraging the church to think outside themselves and care for others. But above all we are to continually look to Christ. Our culture tells us to look out for ourselves first. But as we grow deeper in Christ and read more and more of His word we will realize that the Truth is a message in direct opposition to what the world tells us. Jesus will fill of each day that we ask for His Holy Spirit. The end of ourselves is the beginning of Him.

Application: pray for a heart willing to be the hands and feet of Jesus. He does not NEED us, but delights in using us.
