How to Succeed in Ministry

Sermon Scripture:

1 Timothy 4:11-16

English Standard Version (ESV)

11 Command and teach these things. 12 Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believersan example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching. 14 Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you. 15 Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress. 16 Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.
