"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?
- 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
- You shame the devil.
"I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting." 1 Timothy 2:8.
"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.
