Paul had long-range vision. While many young men and women are encouraged to attend Bible Schools and Seminaries, very few are mentored in the church under the influence of godly leaders. As Paul mentored Timothy, he passed on this long-range vision in 2 Timothy 2:1-2.
“You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”
What type of men must Timothy look for to pass on what he received from Paul?
Why is this type of Character important?
What should these men be able to do?
How would these men learn this important skill unless they practice it ‘in the ministry or on the job’?
Are you involved in this type of training in some way? If not, why not? It requires being “strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” Human effort or programs will never produce godly leaders who multiply themselves.
