1 Timothy 2

Father, fill me up with Your truth.

“The first thing I want you to do is pray:  Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know.” (v 1 MSG)

When the day is going well, You say, “Pray.”
When the day is not so swell, You say, “Pray.”
When life is light and carefree, You say, “Pray.”
When life is heavy and burdened, You say, “Pray.”
When I’m understanding Your ways, You say, “Pray.”
When I can’t find my way, You say, “Pray.”
All day long, all my life long, no matter the circumstances,
it’s always the time for this child to talk with her Daddy.

“He wants not only us but EVERYONE saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth WE’VE learned: that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us — Jesus, who offered Himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free.  Eventually the news is going to get out.  This and this only has been my appointed work:  getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth.” (v 5-7 MSG)

Thank You, Father, for the simple truth of Your gospel.  Thank You that You sent Jesus to die in our place to free us from sin.  Thank You that You raised Him from the dead, and through Him left the promise of Your Holy Spirit’s presence and a guarantee that He would come back to take us into heaven and Your eternal presence.

Continue making me just like Jesus, placing His heart in the place of mine.  Amen.

Draw my heart toward Yours, Jesus, so that I fall deeper in love with You every moment.
