PAUL'S TOOLS - TIMELY LETTERS
As we know, Paul did much more than visit cities to proclaim the gospel, establish churches and then revisit them so they would be firmly established in the faith. He was also an avid writer of timely letters; some from prison.
Since Paul was a master church planter, let us consider his letters like “tools” of his trade, so to speak. Just as a master carpenter or mechanic must know what tools to use on a particular job, so a master church planter should know what tools to use to make a church strong.
While this seems so simple, it is amazing to see pastors, ministers and teachers using a hammer to saw a piece of wood or a saw to hammer a nail or a wrench to loosen a screw, etc. Just like carpenters and mechanics become masters of their trade, so church leaders should become master church planters and establishers using God’s tools which are His Word. God has given us every tool we need to deal with any problem one might face in the church through His Word (II Timothy 3:16-17). God has graciously and abundantly provided the necessary tools for you to make churches strong.
