Bible Qualifications for a Bishop (Part 4) | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

Men’s Leadership Class – Sermon 5

1 Timothy 3:6-7 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

The devil is always striving to attack the work of God. Inexperienced pastors of bad character will easily fall into Satan’s trap and damage the church they are expected to feed and protect.

Men’s Leadership Class – Sermon 4

1 Timothy 3:4-5 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

Having children is not an optional requirement for a Pastor. The family unit is the primary training ground for the man to gain leadership experience.

Bible Qualifications for a Bishop (Part 2) | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

Men’s Leadership Class – Sermon 3

1 Timothy 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

Unqualified pastors leave a path of destruction of scattered and hurting flock. The office should be held by one who seeks to strengthen God’s people putting aside fleshly ambitions.

The Local Church | Jason Parkin

Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

The local church is a place where God’s people can find rest from the world and be fed the word of God. This highlights the importance of having good pastors that serve the congregation with compassion.
