Episode 45 Be Thou an Example of the Believers

October 28–November 3

1 and 2 Timothy; Titus; Philemon

Be Thou an Example of the Believers 

In the epistles Paul wrote to Timothy, Titus, and Philemon, we get a glimpse into the heart of a servant of the Lord. Unlike Paul’s other epistles to entire congregations, these were written to individuals—Paul’s close friends and associates in God’s work—and reading them is like listening in on a conversation. We see Paul encouraging Timothy and Titus, two leaders of congregations, in their Church service. We see him entreating his friend Philemon to forgive a fellow Saint and treat him like a brother in the gospel. Paul’s words were not addressed to us directly, and he may never have expected that so many people would one day read them. Yet we find in these epistles counsel and encouragement for us, whatever our personal ministry in the service of Christ might be.

  1. Hi Melanie!
    Thank you for the podcast!
    I live in Brazil and I heard about it last year when I was attending PathwayConnect. Now, I’m working hard to improve my ability with the English language and your podcast has helped me a lot (even when you speak fast! ).
    I’m the teacher of the Sunday School class for adults in my ward, Then, your words help me to consider different points of view on the lessons’ scriptures.
    Thank you for being a blessing to many people!
