Scripture Reading: I Timothy 2: 1

"I exhort therefore, that first of all, supplications, prayers,  intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men" (I  Timothy 2:1). We are living in a world today that is constantly  in a state of turmoil and shows no signs of getting any better.  No doubt but that in Paul's day, the people looked at things in  much the same way; and yet the apostle exhorts them to  prayer. Certainly our nation today and our leadership is in  need of prayer. Because of our President's stand and actions  there have been some who have stated, "I have a hard time  praying for our President." Our prayers are to be focused on  the Word of God and the will of God, "For this is good and  acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour" (v. 3).

We note in our context that there is no one beyond the  scope of God's grace and provision through Christ, "Who gave  Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." In the  last part of verse 2, we read of the conditions that are  favorable for us to live for the Lord and to reach out to the lost,  "that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness  and honesty."

May we, by God's grace, buy up the time and reach out to  our world today through prayer. Our Lord may soon come;  and until that time, we need to be serving Him.

 How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
