    Pastoral Epistles: Everyone has one. What’s YOUR scorecard say? – Pastor Scott Wilson
    What does your inner scorecard look like? 1 Timothy gives us an insight into what Paul was prioritizing and passing along to younger Timothy. Today in chapters 5 and 6 we will see what was valued (even timeless truths). We will also be given some stern warnings about what to avoid. So let's check in - what do we celebrate as a family? What does Timothy's scorecard imply about our own values? And while we are at it, let's make sure our "outer scoreboard" is not driving us.

    Pastoral Epistles: PRIORITIZE! – Pastor David Schroeder

    Focus, clarify, center, prioritize — this is what Martin Luther did as he studied Romans 1:17: For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith" (NIV).  Prioritizing the gospel sparked the Reformation five-hundred years ago this month. Prioritizing his life and ministry is also how Paul admonished Timothy in today’s text. Do not let personal convictions become your theology; 1 Timothy 4:1-6; Do not let your personal disciplines become your priority; 1Timothy 4:7-11; Do not let your age minimize your ministry; 1 Timothy 4:12-16; Be an example, Focus on the Scriptures, Use your spiritual gift

    Pastoral Epistles: Sola Ecclesia – Pastor David Schroeder

    What’s next? What’s the next huge tragedy to rock our country? Hurricanes and mass murders have taken center stage while terrorism and nuclear threat from rogue nations are lurking behind sheer curtains ready to destroy us. And every issue gets politicized to further divide and weaken our nation, which can’t even agree on how to honor our flag or national anthem.

    Meanwhile, followers of Jesus gather in small groups. They are the Church, the only eternal society on planet earth. Sola ecclesia — only the Church will survive, and that’s why we must observe our Master’s mandates for Church leadership. 1.The Creation Mandate; 2:11-15, 2. The Overseer Mandate; 3:1-7, 3. The Server Mandate; 3:8-13, 4. The Church Mandate; 3:14-16

    Pastoral Epistles: Why Would Anyone Want to be a Pastor? – Pastor David Schroeder
    For the next few months, we will learn from the Pastoral Epistles, 1&2 Timothy and Titus. These letters give us good insight into the priorities of a pastor, which should also help the church members know better how to function. Young, timid Timothy was left in Ephesus, the most pagan city of the New Testament era. (No wonder he had stomach problems and was told to drink wine!) Doctrinal and lifestyle deviance in the church challenged the young pastor, but the aged apostle’s humility set the right tone for effective ministry. Demand doctrinal purity, verses 3-7; Use the Law lawfully, verses 8-11; Remember grace and mercy, verses 12-17; Fight the good fight faithfully, verses 18-20

    Pselect Psalms: Psalm 23 – Our Shepherd Friend – Pastor David Schroeder
    Despite his somewhat inconsistent walk with God, David saw God to be his shepherd and his friend. No psalm better reveals the intimacy between God and those who choose to follow Him. Notice these wonderful blessings:

    God is personal to me (verses 1, 6); God is my provider (verses 2, 5); God is my protector (verses 3, 4).

    Pselect Psalms: Psalms Jesus Selected – Pastor David Schroeder
    Jesus was not officially a rabbi, but his disciples, many other people, and even a member of the Sanhedrin, Nicodemus, called him Rabbi, which means teacher. His mastery of the OT was phenomenal. In the Gospels 104 times (including parallels), he quoted OT scriptures from 19 different books. He quoted from eight Psalms, using them in different ways.  1. Declaring His identity: Psalm 8:2 / Matthew 21:16, Psalm 118:22, 23 / Matthew 21:42, Mark 12:40, Luke 20:17, and Psalm 110:1 / Matthew 22:44, Mark 12:36 and 14:62, Luke 20:42 and 22:69.  2. Prophetic fulfillment: Psalm 82:6 / John 10:34, Psalm 41:9 / John 13:18 and Psalm 69:4 / John 15:25. 3. Talking to His Father from the cross:  Psalm 22:1 / Mark 15:34 and Psalm 31:5 / Luke 23:46.
