    19th Jan 2020 - "Living as Family - Encouraging Leaders" - 1 Timothy 5:17-6:2

    1 Timothy 5:17-6:2
    New International Version (NIV)
    17 The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honour, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. 18 For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,”[a] and “The worker deserves his wages.”[b]19 Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses. 20 But those elders who are sinning you are to reprove before everyone, so that the others may take warning. 21 I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favouritism.
    22 Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
    23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses.
    24 The sins of some are obvious, reaching the place of judgment ahead of them; the sins of others trail behind them. 25 In the same way, good deeds are obvious, and even those that are not obvious cannot remain hidden forever.
    6 All who are under the yoke of slavery should consider their masters worthy of full respect, so that God’s name and our teaching may not be slandered. 2 Those who have believing masters should not show them disrespect just because they are fellow believers. Instead, they should serve them even better because their masters are dear to them as fellow believers and are devoted to the welfare[c] of their slaves. These are the things you are to teach and insist on.

    15th Jan 2020 - "Reading the Bible - Part 1.2" - Big Night In: night 01

    A. Training for Godliness
    1 Timothy 4:7-10
    7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 9 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. 10 That is why we labour and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Saviour of all people, and especially of those who believe.” 
    Godliness: attitude of heart towards God - to love Him with all heart, soul and strength
     
     B. What is the Bible?
    66 books
    ~40 authors
    Took 1500 years to write
    Finished writing >1900 years ago
    Old Testament – Hebrew (& Aramaic)
    New Testament – Greek
    And yet… RELEVANT TO US.
    i. God-breathed
    “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”                                              2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV
    ii. True
    “…it is impossible for God to lie…” Hebrews 8:18 (cp. Titus 1:2)
    iii. Living
    “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword…”
    Hebrews 4:12 ESV
    Therefore… iv. Authoritative
    v. Spiritually Understood
    “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”                                                                                                  1 Corinthians 2:14 ESV

    C. Where Is The Meaning?
    Who has the right to determine the meaning of a text – the author or the reader?
     In your groups:
    Read 1 Corinthians 13.
    In what contexts have you heard this passage commonly used? What tends to be the main point(s) from considering a passage like this?
     
    Read the following verses in 1 Corinthians, which help us to see why Paul wrote this letter
    1:10-12;
    3:1-4;
    6:1-8;
    11:17-18.
    Do these verses affect how we read chapter 13? In what ways does our understanding why Paul wrote the letter clarify how we understand this chapter?
     
     
    Guidance: If we are to understand a passage of Scripture we need to first of all try and understand what the writer was trying to communicate. We can do this by trying to answer questions like:
    Who is the writer?
    Who is the original reader?
    What do we know about their circumstances?
    What prompted this to be written?
    Problems needed addressed?
    Wanted to remind the readers of something?
    To encourage? To convert? To rebuke?

     
    D. The Bible is ONE Story - it can be thought of as having four main parts which are:
    CREATION
    FALL
    RESCUE
    COMPLETION
     Question to ask: How does this passage help me to understand God’s plan of rescue?
     
    Homework.
    Try this exercise for the book of Philippians
    Read all four chapters taking a note of:
    Who wrote this & what do we learn about him?
    Who is this written to & what do we learn about them?
    What circumstances prompted this letter to be written? (may be more than one)
    Sum up what you think the main aim(s) of this letter were.

    12th Jan 2020 - "Present Weakness and Resurrection Life" - 2 Corinthians 4

    2 Corinthians 4  
    New International Version (NIV)
    Present Weakness and Resurrection Life
    4 Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. 2 Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
    7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
    13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.”[b] Since we have that same spirit of[c] faith, we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
    16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

    5th Jan 2020 -"Living as a Family" - 1 Timothy 5:1-16

    5th Jan 2020 -"Living as a Family" - 1 Timothy 5:1-16

    1 Timothy 5:1-16
    New International Version (NIV)
    Living as a Family - Care for the Needy
    5 Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger men as brothers, 2 older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.
    3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. 4 But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 5 The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help. 6 But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives. 7 Give the people these instructions, so that no one may be open to blame. 8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
    9 No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is over sixty, has been faithful to her husband, 10 and is well known for her good deeds, such as bringing up children, showing hospitality, washing the feet of the Lord’s people, helping those in trouble and devoting herself to all kinds of good deeds.
    11 As for younger widows, do not put them on such a list. For when their sensual desires overcome their dedication to Christ, they want to marry. 12 Thus they bring judgment on themselves, because they have broken their first pledge. 13 Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also busybodies who talk nonsense, saying things they ought not to. 14 So I counsel younger widows to marry, to have children, to manage their homes and to give the enemy no opportunity for slander. 15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan.
    16 If any woman who is a believer has widows in her care, she should continue to help them and not let the church be burdened with them, so that the church can help those widows who are really in need.
