When I read the book of Timothy in the Bible, I am struck by how strong Paul is. He doesn’t pull any punches when he is teaching Timothy how to be a leader. Our priority at Home Church Bible College is to teach leaders and help them pass that information along to people that they lead.
2 Timothy 2:15 (Voice) Timothy, do everything you can to present yourself to God as a man who is fully genuine, a worker unashamed of your mission, a guide capable of leading others along the correct path defined by the word of truth.
KJV says to Study to show yourself approved – Newer translations say to do everything you can to present yourself to God. Jesus taught his disciples, then got them to do something with what they learned, and then they came back and asked him questions about what they were doing. When someone is hungry to learn and is doing everything they can to run after God, it is fun to work with them and see God do miracles in their life.
