Today’s reading is 1 Timothy 2.
Here is why it is so important for us to be disciple makers. God wants everyone to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Shockingly, however, He has limited Himself such that people will only learn about the truth and be saved if we get the message out. If people are lost, it is not going to be because of lack of desire on God’s part. Let’s make sure it is not because of lack of truth proclaiming and disciple making on ours. Who can you share the truth with this week?
Tomorrow’s reading is 1 Timothy 3.
A Word for Our Kids
Hey kids, pray. Yep, that’s how Paul starts this section of his letter to Timothy. He wants people to pray for everyone. I’m bringing this to you because if you are like I was when I was young, you think praying is for adults. Not so. You can start praying even now. Sure, you don’t know as much about it now as you will in 10 or 15 years. However, I promise this. You will know even more about it in 10 or 15 years if you start now. Don’t wait until you are 13 or 18 or 21 to start praying. Start today. Ask your parents for help. Or ask one of the elders in your congregation. But start praying today.
