8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; 9 likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, 10 but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. 11 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.15 Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.
We are in a journey through the Apostle Paul's letter to Timothy his son in the faith. Paul is nearing the end of his life and young Timothy is engaged in some real battles for the gospel among the people where he serves. This letter gives us great insight into the weight of ministry and the joy of service.
For those of you who desire to go much deeper into the study of First Timothy I recommend the resources found on this link
The church where young Timothy served was a church in conflict. Some of the conflict was over doctrine, some over meaningless "genealogies" some over overt sin, some over generational conflict just to name a few. But there is hope and joy to be found in following the leadership of the Holy Spirit and a unwavering commitment to sound doctrine. We have much to learn and enjoy from our study of this letter.
