Welcome to the ACTS Podcast!

After appealing for qualities such as courage, willingness to suffer, and faithfulness in the life of a minister, (all Christians are ministers, servants) Paul borrowed images from daily life to illustrate the traits necessary for effective service. He pictures the effective minister in terms of a teacher (2:1-2), a soldier (2:3-4), an athlete (2:5), and a farmer (2:6).  He concluded with an appeal for Timothy to consider carefully the application of these images (2:7). Lea, Thomas D., Griffin, Hayne P. Jr., 1992, P.200)

(1938; 2001, P. 85)
