1 Timothy

This first of the Pastoral Epistles shows us that God blesses His Church through the Office of the Holy Ministry. Jesus Christ established this office to carry out the public ministry of the Gospel, which brings salvation to the whole world. Therefore, it bears a divine stamp of authority and power that is exercised through preaching and teaching, administration of the Sacraments, and overseeing the congregation. Because of this, the pastoral office is shaped, directed, and determined not by people but by Jesus Christ in accordance with the Gospel.
