Pray much for others!

"For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth." 1 Timothy 2:3-4 KJV

What is that good and acceptable in the sight of God?

It’s PRAYING - making; supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, made for all men, (ref: 1 Timothy 2:1).

To exhort you to pray is "Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, ... a teacher...in faith and verity" 1 Timothy 2:7.

A preacher, an apostle, and a teacher share same characteristics; i.e., they all should speak the truth in Christ, and lie not, (1 Timothy 2:7). Say, "I’m a good teacher! I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not!" 

Why is it important that you speak the truth?
  1. It is good and acceptable in the sight of God. "who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth," and obviously 
  2. You shame the devil.
Now, Paul is giving you and me directions to praying well, and here is how you should pray;

Men
"I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting." 1 Timothy 2:8.
Women
"In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works." 1 Timothy 2:9-10.
Men and women, we all should pray in the same way, however women should be more sensible in manner and clothing. A Christian woman shouldn’t be known for any wrong reason, except for being good, living quiet, loving, and trust in God. This also is good and acceptable in the sight of God who will have all men and women to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

God bless,

The office of a bishop!

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach." 1 Timothy 3:2
You got to tick all the boxes to be a bishop, not to tick tick the only one box that suits you most, but all. It‘s not enough only to be able to teach whilst you fail on the other aspects. A bishop must be blameless and beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, not a bully, but gentle, considerate, and free from the love of money. Now consider also your leader, if he/she can teach, but falls short on the other characteristics then you should know you’re both liable to falling into the devil’s trap. How will he/she take care of the church of God while ethically wrong?
Paul says, "These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, …

Who are you following?

Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.
Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2 
 He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will. 
Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.

"Be not ye therefore partakers …

Christ in you the hope of glory!

God created all things by Jesus Christ, "In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him" Ephesians 3:12
Faith, not your own, but that we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him, Jesus Christ our Lord. 
By the faith of him, "the dispensation of the grace of God", was given to us also. Paul says, "by revelation he made known unto me the mystery...Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed...by the Spirit." Ephesians 3:3-5. The revelation is unique my friend.
He wrote also saying, "Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ." Ephesians 3:8-9. We don’t just fellowship anyway anyway but we’re enlightened, an…
