“No one likes rejection, so become informed, love the truth of God, and be saved from the grips of the evil one or his false teachers.” ~ Jon Barnes
It is a pleasure to have a mind and heart to learn, read, study, and become informed, reassured, and transformed by the Word of God. Good information and wisdom from God is better than gold, fame, pride, greed, and lust. As a result, few people choose Good information because of their passion for worldly pleasures that lust after the flesh.
There is no hope in trying to buy your way out of sin. God’s Bible is an accurate account of History and you must know these stories for yourself. You must go by the book of God after you go buy and read a copy of it for yourself. God holds us all accountable for the true work we put into learning, growing, and working for Him. No love means no faith, no work, and no hope in God.
Receive the feedback that God has given you as a wonderful warning of things to come. I do not want to be caught up in the evil of someone else, so I tend to do my own work to monitor and focus on my progress and I’ll ask God for direction and feedback. I can only share what I read and learn from His Bible. Test this theory out for yourself and receive God’s acceptance and Spirit of Truth.
Have you been comforted with God’s Holy Spirit of Truth and Acceptance to become obedient.
Enjoy Today’s Reading.
1 Timothy 1
1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope,
2 To Timothy my true son in the faith:
Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
Timothy Charged to Oppose False Teachers
3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer 4 or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith. 5 The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 6 Some have departed from these and have turned to meaningless talk.7 They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.
8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.
The Lord’s Grace to Paul
12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. 13 Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. 14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
The Charge to Timothy Renewed
18 Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, 19 holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith. 20 Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander,whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.
