Title: The Work of the Lord
Passage: 1 Corinthians 16:5-12
Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin
Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service
Date: July 24, 2016
Just as last week we gleaned some marks of healthy church life from Paul’s remarks concerning the collection, this week we see marks of faithfulness to the Lord’s work from Paul’s incidental remarks concerning his travels. If I could sum up the main point in vv. 5-12, it would be, Christian ministers must be faithful to the NT pattern of ministry. Although Paul’s ministry as an Apostle differs from that of pastors today, in Paul’s plans for himself, Timothy, and Apollos we can learn several sound lessons still applicable for those who do the work of the Lord as Paul did.
