When Doing What's Hard is Best, single message
This message is part 10 of the series Tough Grace in Difficult Places.
God's work is sacred. So when a person engaged in ministry repeatedly defies God's high and holy standards, Paul's judgment and command are uncompromising: that individual is “perverted” and must be removed. The very reason God's work is holy is because He is holy.
Those who minister will never do so without some failures, because they are not holy as He is. God's grace, however, is sufficient to forgive those frailties. But those who cover up a lifestyle of sin behind the facade of sacred ministry must be confronted and removed.
1 Timothy 5:20-21; Titus 3:10-11
