Thank you for joining us on this page. I do hope you have read the first part of this article. If you haven’t, please go here to check it out. We shall continue from where we stopped. The charge is taken from 2 Timothy 4:1-5. We have discussed verses 1 to 2a. Today, we shall discuss verse 2b. Here it says three things every called man of God must do with the word of God. If you must be a balance preacher, the word of God must be a tool in your hand to do three things that Paul indicated. Some preachers do not engage in the three. This maybe because of fear that they may leave or because they don’t want to lose benefits they gain from the congregation.

Reprove

Paul says reprove with the word of God. This means that you need to correct the wrong things in the church and the people you pastor. This is a part of Pastoral duty that is missing in our world today. This is where the issue begins and its why there is so much trouble in the body of Christ. There is no order anymore. People no longer know what is right and wrong in the house of God. Pastors, please reprove when necessary.

Rebuke

Every church is expected to have a system of punishment as well as reward. There must be a good way of investigating issues that will show brotherly love. People who default must be rebuked in love in a way that will help them rise again. Here Pastor must seek divine wisdom. Without wisdom, it is extremely difficult to do this well. If you must have a pass mark with God in what He has called you to do, you must learn to rebuke in God’s way. If you don’t do it when needed, you have failed God.

Exhort

Pastor must be able to encourage their congregation and individual. Gospel itself is a message of hope and life. You must be able to show people how the life will be renewed even if the individual has lost it all. So, encourage your people and help them to become better through encouragement. The job of a Pastor entails helping God to reach the people and bringing them closer to God for transformation. Almost every Pastor is skilled in doing this today. Let’s do it more without neglecting others.

READ  Mishandled Christian Ministry

Interestingly, Paul says you will do this in long-suffering and doctrine. That means you may have to go through hard times fulfilling these duties. It may put you in trouble sometimes whether physically or spiritually. That is part of the calling too. I love the doctrine part too. It means this must be incorporated into Church teachings. So, people must be disciple into this. This, in itself is sound doctrine that is not really in ministries of today. So, make sure you reprove, rebuke and exhort with the word of God accordingly. Don’t disappoint God.
