Our Aim Is Love: Dr. Bradley J. Bitner—WSC 2024 Annual Conference

Paul argues in 1 Timothy 1:5-7 that being mindful of the goal in Christian ministry and discipleship keeps us from swerving and wandering. That goal is love–not a love of power or position or platforming, not a love of winning the argument, nor a love of hearing oneself talk. The aim is instead an exemplary love and care for others that finds its source in God’s grace that overflows to us in Christ. When we aim for this love, the church grows and God is glorified.
