What is the primary thing for elder? "Rule Well" is our answer from 1 Tim. 5:17. For preacher? "speak and exhort and reprove with all authority" from Titus 2:15. Then we consider elders overseeing their own congregation, but the universal authority for the teaching of Christ to go to all places.
We are made in God's image, but that image has been greatly marred by sin. In this lesson, we look at some of the effects of sin and the hope for the renewal and restoration that is offered in Christ.
What is important in this life? God places the priority on others, not ourselves. Matt Erb explains to us in this lesson that we should have the same attitude as the apostle Paul, who was willing to "spend and be spent" for the souls of others.
In this study, we look at the universality of worth for all humanity, and some of the areas in which we are made like our creator -- intelligence, creativity and a spiritual sense, among others.
In this lesson, we begin to look at the great importance of being God's image bearers in this world. The scriptures say that we are made in His image and pass it on to our descendants, as it was passed to us. We also think of how sin has marred that image.
Jesus clearly says hearing and acting on His word is building your house, your life, on the rock of God. Hearing and not acting is building on a foundation of sand. Our study of the Sermon on the Mount closes as we consider the clear choice Jesus places before us.
What are the different areas that elders and preachers have to take responsibility for? In this study, we see how elders are to care primarily for the members and the preacher primarily for the teaching.
In this lesson, we briefly examine the great plan of God for our salvation. We find it to be wonderful, merciful and gracious towards those who do not deserve it because of His love for us, His creation.
Jesus taught by doing. At the last supper, he did the job the apostles surely thought themselves too good to do. They were not. He was not. We are not. In this lesson, we learn to serve with love from a place of both confidence and humility.
Jesus taught a very simple, yet profoundly important, lesson -- you will be judged by your fruit. What you do, not just what you wanted or intended to do is how you will be judged.
What are elders to take heed to? What are preachers told to take heed to? Both are admonished by the apostle Paul to first take heed to themselves. From there, the admonitions are different. Study with us how and why.
Elders and preachers both have scriptural requirements regarding their character, the example that they show and their teaching. In this lesson, we examine the similarities and differences.

Your resume, your obituary, and your eulogy are some of the most important statements about who you are. In this sermon, we see which is the most important, which you have the most control over, and what is the final word about your life.
