I’m nobody’s servant!” I cried out. That morning the demands of my family seemed too much as I frantically helped to find my husband’s blue tie, while feeding the crying baby and recovering the lost toy from under the bed for our 2-year-old.

1 Timothy 1:1-6, 18-20; 2:1-8; 3:1-13; 4:11-16

First Timothy, the flagship of Paul's “pastoral” letters, details the role of the pastor and the function of the church. Our goal is to glean from this first-century epistle some of the concerns and pitfalls of ministry and apply God's instructions to the 21st-century church. This study offers insight on the biblical theology of ministry—as opposed to an approach to ministry based on experience, opinion, prejudice, culture, and preference. Let's keep a keen eye on what is written in God's Word and then do our best to let it shape our thinking.

By the way, don’t be over taken up with your outward appearance. Look nice enough of course, but don’t be overly taken up with that. You might start to kid yourself that’s the real you, and it isn’t.

I've got to get my things packed so I'll be ready when Aunt Marge comes to pick

me up," said Brian, sliding off his chair after supper. He was excited about spending a whole week with his aunt and uncle on their farm.

When Aunt Marge arrived later that evening, Brian was waiting, and soon they were on their way. Brian looked at the clock in the dashboard of the car. "Aunt Marge, your clock is wrong," he said as they drove down the street. "It says it's only six o'clock, but it's really seven o'clock already."

"I know!" said Aunt Marge. "Nobody changed the clock when the time changed this spring. I always intend to do it, but somehow I never get to it."

"Can I fix it?" asked Brian. "How do you do it?"

"Actually, I don't know," said Aunt Marge. "I haven't had this car very long yet,

and I'll have to get out the instruction manual to see how it works." She glanced out the back window, then over toward Brian. "Will you please roll down your window and adjust that side mirror?" she asked. "It needs to be tilted up a little."

"Don't you have a button to move it from the inside?" asked Brian as he opened

the window.

Aunt Marge shrugged. "I don't know that, either," she said.

Brian grinned. "You'd better read your instruction manual, Aunt Marge. It sure won't do you any good in the glove compartment," he teased as he adjusted the mirror.

Aunt Marge grinned. "That's true," she agreed. "Instruction manuals are meant to be read and followed, not just stashed away. Our pastor pointed that out last Sunday."

"He did?" asked Brian. "He talked about cars?"

"Not the instruction manuals for cars," replied Aunt Marge. "He talked about our manual for living. Do you know what that is?"

"The Bible?" guessed Brian. "That must be why Dad makes us read it every day."

Aunt Marge nodded. "It gives operating instructions for our lives," she replied. "Now, there's a manual I have had time to read!"

How About You?
Do you listen carefully when God's Word is read? Do you read it for yourself and do what it says?It's important to follow the instructions God gives. Use your Bible regularly so you know how God wants you to live. Then do what He tells you to do.

Today's Key Verse:
As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word that you may grow thereby.
(1 Peter 2:2)

Today's Key Thought:
Read God's manual

Verse: Psalm 139:8-10

If I go up to the heavens, you are there. If I lie down in the deepest parts of the earth, you are also there. Suppose I were to rise with the sun in the east and then cross over to the west where it sinks into the ocean. Your hand would always be there to guide me. Your right hand would still be holding me close.

Is there any place that a person can go and that God can't follow? Time for a quiz called "Can God Go There?"

Question 1: During the storm, where did Jonah end up? Was God there?  Jonah 1

Question 2: After a severe beating, where did Paul and his friend Silas end up? Was God there? Acts 16:16-40

Question 3: Who did Philip meet on a lonely, deserted road? Was God there? Acts 8: 26-40

Question 4: Where did Queen Esther live? Was God there? Esther 2

How did you do? In the middle of the terrible storm, Jonah told the frightened sailors to toss Jonah overboard. When Jonah was in the water, God sent a great fish to swallow Jonah and keep him safe! And Jonah worshiped God inside the fish. Yes, God was there.

Paul and Silas were tossed into prison after their beating. They were in the darkest, safest cell available. Their feet were in stocks. At midnight there was an earthquake. Paul used this whole experience to lead the jailer and his family to believe in Jesus. Yes, God was there!

Philip was teaching lots of people to know Jesus when an angel of the Lord sent him to a lonely road in the middle of nowhere. Suddenly an Ethiopian man in a chariot rode by. Philip told the man about Jesus and baptized him. The man continued to his own country, bringing the good news about Jesus with him. Yes, God was there!

Queen Esther lived in a palace in Persia – a land where her people had been sent into exile many years before. Life was fine until her husband, the king, signed a law that stated Jewish people could be killed on a certain day. Queen Esther had to change the king's mind and save her people all by herself. Before she attempted her rescue, she asked every Jew living in this Persia to fast and pray first. Then she went to the king, he changed the law, and the Jewish people praised God for his rescue. Yes, God was there!

Is there any place that God can't go? Absolutely, positively NO! God is everywhere. He even gives us his Holy Spirit to dwell in us and guide us. It's another reason to praise God today!

Discussion Guide:

There is an old children’s song that goes like this:

You cannot hide from God

You cannot hide from God

Wherever you go

Whatever you do

You cannot hide from God

His eye is fixed on you

You cannot hide from God.

Parents would often sing this song to their children, sometimes not necessarily to comfort, so much as to make them behave. But that is not the intended sentiment of the song. The song’s purpose is indeed to offer comfort. The truth is that we cannot go anywhere without God’s presence being there with us. God is everywhere.

Sometimes we forget that God is present with us. When we don’t give thanks for our meals, we act as if he isn’t at the table with us. When we don’t pray before we go to sleep, we act as if he isn’t keeping watch through the night. When we go to work or to school and behave like everyone else, we act as if he stops at the front door and we are free to do whatever we want. But God is not confined to a church building, and we are to live in a continuing awareness of and dependence on his presence with us. So when your kids leave for school, remind them that they go with God. When they play on the playground, or hang out with friends, Jesus is there too. God is a 24/7 God and we are to be 24/7 disciples.

We cannot hide from God. God will never leave us. His hand is always there to hold us close and to guide us. What a powerful gift to give our children—to know that God is always with them. Let’s celebrate and worship him 24/7.
