God’s Truth for Trying Times - 12/2/21


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 3:8-9

Deacons likewise must be dignified, not double-tongued, not addicted to much wine, not greedy for dishonest gain. They must hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. [1 Timothy 3:8-9 ESV] 


CONSIDER: Those who qualify to serve as deacons must meet the qualifications of a growing Christian who will humbly hold to the faith and lead others to Christ and scripture.



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.
