1 Timothy 3:8-13
God cares more about who we are than what position we hold. It seems that this is why He gives little detail to what the role of the Deacon includes, while giving great detail about what the life of the Deacon will look like. Paul writes to Timothy giving him a list of standards or qualifications for those that will hold the role of Deacon. At first glance this list seems too lofty for anyone to achieve, but in Christ, this list of standards can become anyone's pursuit of holiness.
