1 Timothy 3:14-16
Prayer- Dear Lord, Open our hearts and open our minds and help us learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen
14Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, 15if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. 16Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He[
] appeared in a body,[b] was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
Are you ready to sing? Paul is. In this short song Paul teaches several important parts of our Christian faith;
1. Jesus was human (appeared in a body, preached among the nations)
2.Had God with him (vindicated by the spirit)
3.Jesus is divine (seen by angels and taken up to glory)
These instructions are simple and to the point. They also show us all we need to know to get started in a life of evangelism and godly living. This is how we should live in the church (universal-not congregational.)
How well do we teach these truths? Remember- we teach by example more than by word.
Prayer- Lord, Thank you for sending your Son to be our foundation of faith, Help us use him to spread Your love throughout the world. Go-Fight-Win Amen.
