To Be Overseer, Take
Roles Serious It is true that anyone who desires to be a church official wants to be something worthwhile. 2 Thats why officials must have a good reputation and be faithful in marriage. They must be self-controlled, sensible, well-behaved, friendly to strangers, and able to teach.
They must not be heavy drinkers or troublemakers. Instead, they must be kind and gentle and not love money. Church officials must be in control of their own f
and they must see that their children are obedient and always respectful.
If they dont know how to control t
heir own families
, how can they look after Gods people? They must not be new followers of the Lord. If they are, they might become proud and be doomed along with the devil. Finally, they must be well-respected by people who are not followers. Then they wont be trapped and disgraced by the devil. 1 Timothy 3:1-6
