"Improper Motive"  1 Timothy 6:3-5

Once again Paul returns to false teachers of his day.  Here he gives another indictment concerning the false teachers.  He lets us know that their reason for such teachings is to bring chaos into the church, to cause problems.  His condemnation is very direct and lets them, and us know they are full of pride plus they actually know nothing.  The reason this is true, is to be able to instruct someone on spiritual matters they need to be spiritually alive, and someone not born again, born spiritually, has no ability to see the scriptures or the world from a Godly view-point.  Let us be encouraged to be men and women who know that we know Jesus as Savior and are growing in the truth of God's Word.

A Charge to Employees  1 Timothy 6:1-2

Although Paul n this text deals with slaves, we can look at this passage and parallel it to our day as how employees are to conduct themselves in the work place.  It is that both the employer and the employee are to give proper respect to each other.  The employer is not to take advantage of the worker and the employee is to respect the boss.  Let me put it this way, a Christian employer ought to be the best person to work for and the Christian worker should be the best and most productive employee in the work place.  Let this text challenge us to be those types of persons.

Guest Speaker:  Ken Hechmer    "Renewing of Our Commitment to God"  2 Chronicles 31:20-21

At the beginning of very year many of us make resolutions which within a very short time either forget about or fail to continue trying to accomplish for many reasons not the least of which is we try to do it on our own, or our hearts just aren't in it.  We lose our motivation.  Many times we experience the same problem with our commitment to God.  How is your commitment to God?  Is it weak?  Are your struggling?  What does the Word of God say about how to renew our commitment to Him and strengthen our relationship?
