Scripture

1 Timothy 1

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What is the aim of biblical instruction? What must one do to fight the good fight?

Application

Am I allowing God’s Word to work in and through me to grow love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith? Am I holding firmly to faith and a good conscience?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, Keep me from false teachings, myths, and endless genealogies, for these promote useless speculations rather than Your redemptive plan that operates by faith. Help me to feed on Your Word, and may Your Spirit build within me love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith. May I never stray from these, and may I never try to put myself or others back under the tyranny of the law. Thank You for the glorious gospel! Thank You that although I was formerly an arrogant blasphemer in my sinful state, You treated me with mercy and saved me by the blood of Christ, who came into the world to save sinners like me. Now to You–the eternal King, immortal, invisible, the only God–be honor and glory forever and ever! In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
