Day by Day Through the Bible: Six Days in 1 Timothy - Digital Download
1 Timothy was written by Paul in the mid-60s A.D, possibly after his first imprisonment in Rome at the close of the Book of Acts. Paul wrote 1 Timothy to advise Timothy about issues arising at the church of Ephesus. The theme of 1 Timothy is the Gospel leads to the practical, visible change in the lives of those who believe it. While we are in 1 Timothy, we can look for the most explicit teaching in the Bible, that there is one God, one mediator between Him and men, the Lord Jesus Christ. We will find a list of qualifications for church leadership, and how to live a blameless life. This 18-page devotion takes you through 1 Timothy one chapter a day in six days.
Comment: As I wrote in my journal in ‘92, “God desires that all would be saved, however, He won’t force us. We have the choice to stay unsaved.” So, today, you can choose to believe what we heard and read, or you can choose to reject it. But God’s Word is clear: He loves you and He desires that you be saved.
Prayer: Father, we thank You for this list Paul delineates for Christian leadership in Your churches. We pray our churches today would reflect these qualifications in their leadership. Especially that Christian leaders would hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. Lord, bless those in Christian leadership today. May we represent the household of God and truly be a buttress for truth in our world today. God bless Christian leadership. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
