I.       Older men are to live in a way that accords with sound doctrine. v. 2

II.      Older women are to live in a way that accords with sound doctrine. v. 3

III.    Young women are to live in a way that accords with sound doctrine. vv. 4-5

Lesson:

A.     The Manner of a Christian Bondslave’s/Employee’s Work: Live out the Implications of the Gospel. vv. 9-10b

 

1.      Voluntary submission, v. 9a

2.      Well-pleasing, v. 9b

3.      Not Argumentative v. 9c

4.      Not Pilfering, v. 10a

5.      Showing all good faith v. 10b

 

B.      The Purpose of the Christian Bondslave’s/Employee’s Work: Adorn the Gospel. v. 10b

 

Reflection:

  

1.      How you work in your job can either hinder or adorn the gospel.

2.      The purpose of work is to adorn the gospel not just make money.

3.      A less than ideal job provides a great evangelistic opportunity.

4.      Remember: Your job is not and cannot be your savior!
