Fellow Pastors, Pay Attention! – Pt. 1 of 2

by Paul Tautges | November 2, 2011 4:55 am

Fighting the good fight of faith—as a pastor—boils down to the constant maintenance of two areas of life: Our personal lives and our doctrine (pastoral failure is almost always the result of unfaithfulness in one of these areas).

While teaching on The Pastor’s Home in Russia last week, I broke the men into small buzz groups. Their assignment was to read through 1 & 2 Timothy and chart specific applications of Paul’s two-fold admonition: “Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching” (1 Tim. 4:16). We then re-grouped and discussed our findings. Here’s a summary of the first part.

Pay Attention to YOURSELF…

1 Timothy

2 Timothy

Tomorrow’s post will summarize our discoveries concerning our teaching ministry.
