Deacons

Paul describes the church as the “Household of God” in 1 Timothy. As such, he encourages Timothy to help people understand how people ought to conduct themselves in this household. One aspect of a “successful” household is its leadership. In this passage, Paul helps Timothy understand the qualifications of Deacons in a local church.

1 Timothy Introduction

Though it was necessary for Paul to leave Timothy in Ephesus, he wrote two brief letters to help his “son in the faith” understand “…how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth” (1 Timothy‬ ‭3:15‬b CSB‬‬).
