Timothy was one of Paul's closest companions. Timothy is a prime example of one who was influenced by Godly relatives. His mother, Eunice, and grandmother, Lois, were Jewish believers who helped shape his life and promote spiritual growth. The first "third generation Christian mentioned in the New Testament, Timothy became Paul's protege and pastor of the church at Ephesus. As a young minister, Timothy faced all sorts of pressures, conflicts, and challenges for the church and his surrounding culture. To counsel and encourage Timothy, Paul sent this very personal letter, 1 Timothy.

1 Timothy 3

Leaders in the Church

1 This is a trustworthy saying: “If someone aspires to be a church leader,[a] he desires an honorable position.” 2 So a church leader must be a man whose life is above reproach. He must be faithful to his wife.[b] He must exercise self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation. He must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must be able to teach. 3 He must not be a heavy drinker[c] or be violent. He must be gentle, not quarrelsome, and not love money. 4 He must manage his own family well, having children who respect and obey him. 5 For if a man cannot manage his own household, how can he take care of God’s church?

6 A church leader must not be a new believer, because he might become proud, and the devil would cause him to fall.[d] 7 Also, people outside the church must speak well of him so that he will not be disgraced and fall into the devil’s trap.

8 In the same way, deacons must be well respected and have integrity. They must not be heavy drinkers or dishonest with money. 9 They must be committed to the mystery of the faith now revealed and must live with a clear conscience.10 Before they are appointed as deacons, let them be closely examined. If they pass the test, then let them serve as deacons.

11 In the same way, their wives[e] must be respected and must not slander others. They must exercise self-control and be faithful in everything they do.

12 A deacon must be faithful to his wife, and he must manage his children and household well. 13 Those who do well as deacons will be rewarded with respect from others and will have increased confidence in their faith in Christ Jesus.

The Truths of Our Faith

14 I am writing these things to you now, even though I hope to be with you soon,15 so that if I am delayed, you will know how people must conduct themselves in the household of God. This is the church of the living God, which is the pillar and foundation of the truth.

16 Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith[f]:

Christ[g] was revealed in a human body
    and vindicated by the Spirit.[h]
He was seen by angels
    and announced to the nations.
He was believed in throughout the world
    and taken to heaven in glory.


3:1 Or an overseer, or a bishop; also in 3:2, 6.
3:2 Or must have only one wife, or must be married only once; Greek reads must be the husband of one wife; also in 3:12.
3:3 Greek must not drink too much wine; similarly in 3:8.
3:6 Or he might fall into the same judgment as the devil.
3:11 Or the women deacons. The Greek word can be translated women or wives.
3:16a Or of godliness.
3:16b Greek He who; other manuscripts read God.
3:16c Or in his spirit.

One thought on “1 Timothy 3 Daily Bible Reading with Paul Nison

  1. Yes, first thing in the morn and last of the eve. Bible 📑❤

    They were such respectors of persons , whixh JAMES teaches Not to do. If a man in a 3 pc suit entered, oh, oh, he was we)l attened to . BUT if a struggling homeless person entered, he got a pamplet handed to him. If these Sunday Social Clubs have ( board meetings) & 503c tax exemption, they are a favored business of rhe world-lets just call it.
    Yeshua came , HE SAID, to divide. A divided home is a sad home. How can people who have an unconverted spouse or an opostrate spouse ” enjoy life “? Watching yr children favor rhe worldly parent & never want ro join you in Bible rime or prayer. Day in & day out, livin-it- up in worldliness. Soooo grueling.
