Bible verses about Instructions to a Minister
(From Forerunner Commentary)

1 Timothy 4:11-12   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Paul admonishes Timothy, a pastor of a church, to command, teach, and be an example. Each charge strongly suggests someone leading and others following.

1 Timothy 4:14-16   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

This is instruction to a minister, specifically, but it applies to everyone. Paul is telling Timothy not to allow himself to become careless and neglect the calling, the wonderful opportunity, that had been given to him. He instructs him to meditate on what a great thing had been given to him. He tells him to fasten it deeply in his heart, to give himself wholly to it, and to be absorbed by it.

This is what God wants from us. Paul also says to watch our life and our doctrine closely. We have to pay attention to ourselves and to God's instruction. We are not to let down, but to continue, to persevere, because in so doing we will help to save ourselves and those who hear us.

John O. Reid
Don't Take God for Granted
