1 Timothy 2:1 KJVS
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
OPENING COMMENT by Robert
The disciples of Christ must be praying people, all, without distinction of nation, sect, rank, or party. Our duty as believers is summed up in two words; godliness, that is, the right worshipping of God; and honesty, that is, good conduct toward all men.
These must go together: we are not truly honest, if we are not godly, and do not render God his due; and we are not truly godly, if not honest. What is acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, we should abound in.
There is one Mediator, and that Mediator gave himself a ransom for all. And this appointment has been made for the benefit of the Jews and the Gentiles of every nation; that all who are willing may come in this way, to the mercy-seat of a pardoning God, to seek reconciliation with him. Sin had made a quarrel between God and us; Jesus Christ is the Mediator who makes peace. He is a ransom that was to be known in due time.
In the Old Testament times, his sufferings, and the glory that should follow, were spoken of as things to be revealed in the last times. Those who are saved must come to the knowledge of the truth, for that is God’s appointed way to save sinners: if we do not know the truth, we cannot be ruled by it.
Remember, these articles are from a humble servant doing God’s work as a watchman. Blessings to all. May your walks be steady blessed and lead to Yeshua waiting at the door when the time is right.
