    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Friday, June 28

    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Be training yourself with godly[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] devotion as your aim.[/FONT] —[FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]1 Tim. 4:7.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    The elders take the lead in
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] training men to reach out. Although[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]others can help and support[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] him, the primary responsibility[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] for reaching out rests with[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]the man himself. [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](Gal. 6:5)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Of[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] course, a brother does not have to[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] be a ministerial servant or an elder[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]in order to help others and[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] have a full share in the ministry.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    However, reaching out for privileges
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] in the congregation does[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] mean striving to meet the qualifications[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]set out in the Scriptures.[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](1 Tim. 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Pet.5:1-3)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] So if a man desires to serve[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]as a ministerial servant or an elder[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] but has not yet been appointed[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] to be one, he should give attention[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]to areas where he needs[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] to make spiritual advancement.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    This calls for regular Bible reading,
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] diligent personal study, serious[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] meditation, heartfelt prayer,[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]and zealous participation in the[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Christian ministry.
