STIMULATE

** Having just completed our series entitled “Led by the Spirit”, it was wonderful to realize that God’s will for our lives is for us to be Saved, Spirit-filled, Sanctified, Submissive and for us to be willing to experience Suffering for His name. What were the five commands given to us by David in Psalm 37:3-4 which would help us to understand the first principle of being “Led by the Spirit”?

We are to: 1) Trust in the Lord, 2) Do good, 3) Dwell in the land,
4) Cultivate faithfulness and 5) Delight yourself in the Lord.

** What were the two principles from David which would ensure that we are living each day “Led by the Spirit”?

1) Do whatever you want! If all ten things listed above are true about your daily walk with the Lord, then the desires you have come from Him.

2) Keep moving! We should be continually available to our Lord to use our spiritual gifts as He directs for the advancement of the body and the building up of our fellow saints.
cf. Psalm 37:23, 1Peter 4:10

MOTIVATE

** As we now return to our pattern of studying the Pauline epistles, we come to Paul’s first letter to Timothy. When we consider the title of this epistle, we are immediately confronted with a glaring difference in Paul’s thinking. He is no longer addressing entire congregations, like we saw in Galatians, Ephesians,
Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2Thessalonians; but rather is writing an extremely personal letter to just
one individual. Over the next month here in chapter one, we will see Paul address four critical issues in the
life of a Christian. He is going to instruct Timothy regarding:

CORRECTING ERROR - 1Timothy 1:1-5
CORRUPT ENVIRONMENT - 1Timothy 1:6-11
CHRIST’S EXAMPLE - 1Timothy 1:12-17
CONSCIENTIOUS EFFORT - 1Timothy 1:18-20
