  7. Paul warned Timothy there would be two types of enemies in the Church: a) those from the outside to tear down and b) those within, wolves in the sheep skis whose only purpose is to draw followers for their own purpose even stealing the sheep. In such a time as this, the leadership that counts most is to what extent the faith in the God who sees and watch all is grounded, second to what extent the person(s) are willing to focus on the mission God has commssioned him so that his service to the flock will be balanced and fruitful. This mostly accomplished by relying on the magnet God provides….God’s Spirit —-the only means to reach God and ulfill His will. This is a great opportunity to honor God.
