A Workman That Needeth Not to be Ashamed

Frank Bateman Stanger

Building upon the exhortation of the Apostle Paul to Timothy, his "son" in the Christian ministry, "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed (2 Timothy 2:15)." The author speaks out of his own experience as a pastor to those who are ministers or who are preparing themselves for Christian ministry. It is the author's conviction that in an age when society, in general, with its galaxy of problems and its multiplicity of needs demands skillful leaders and skilled workers, even more does the Christian Society require at its head and at its heart "workmen that need not to be ashamed."
