God’s Truth for Trying Times - 11/23/21
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 2:5-7
For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time. For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. [1 Timothy 2:5-7 ESV]
CONSIDER: There is only one way to be saved. Jesus Christ gave himself as a ransom for all who would believe. This testimony has been given abundantly. It is very clear and it is unchanging. The only way that you can be saved is to come to God through the Lord Jesus Christ, by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for the glory of God alone.
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.
