Currently pastor John is doing a preaching series on 1 Timothy. The apostle Paul wrote 1 Timothy in order to advise Timothy, a young pastor in his early to mid thirties, concerning issues that were arising at the church in Ephesus. Paul had left Timothy to oversee the work in Ephesus and since he was separated from Timothy, and the church, he wrote 1 Timothy to give him instructions about church issues and leadership. He hoped to return but wrote in the meantime to address the way in which Christians should behave and to teach a young pastor what he should prioritise (4:11-16).
The letter as a whole is bracketed by the discussion of false teaching (1:3-7; 6:2-21). The exact nature of the false teaching is unclear. It apparently involved speculation about the law (1:7-11)... Paul's reasoning however is clear: Wrong teaching leads to wrong living while healthy teaching leads to godliness. Paul’s real concern is with the results of false teaching—it promotes speculations (1:4; 6:4), arrogance (6:4), and greed (6:5-10). Paul addresses the content of the false teaching only in passing but focuses on the fact that true Christianity is evidenced by a godly lifestyle, not fruitless talk.
1 Timothy is a clear call for the church to live out gospel empowered godliness. We need to hear this call today more than ever! Throughout the letter Paul grounds Christian behaviour in the truth of the gospel. The primary theme is that the gospel leads to real and visible change in the lives of those who believe it. It is often thought that the theme is church order, this is included but the sections on church order and offices are simply part of the larger theme that the true gospel, in contrast to false teaching, will always lead to godliness (4:6-7).
