A Minister’s Work in a Few Words

The work of a minister is to teach and instruct the brethren in sound doctrine (1 Tim. 4:6, 2 Tim. 1:13, Titus 2:1), to preach and evangelize (2 Tim. 4:2, 5, Titus 1:3), to charge others not to teach other doctrines (1 Tim. 1:3-4), to correct open sin (1 Tim. 5:20-21, Titus 2:15), to give attention wholly to reading, exhortation, and doctrine in Christ (1 Tim. 1:13, 4:13-16); to charge others not to dispute (2 Tim. 2:14-16, 24-26), to reject divisive men (Titus 3:10-11), to train faithful people to teach (2 Tim. 2:2), to help appoint elders (Titus 1:5), and to be an example maintaining good works (1 Tim. 4:12, Titus 3:14). From this understanding, all other tasks are implied or are the inventions of men.
