God’s Truth for Trying Times - 11/16/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: 1 Timothy 1:5-7

The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions. [1 Timothy 1:5-7 ESV] 


CONSIDER: The goal of our instruction from the word of God is a heart that is right with God and a conscience that is clear and a faith that is without falsehood. Many have wandered away from the truth of the word of God and they are without understanding and they foolishly draw people away from the truth. We must lovingly pull people out of the way of error and point them to the way of truth.



THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?


PRAY: Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
