Scripture reading for October 1st: Isaiah 15-17, 1 Timothy 6
Key Scriptures: 1st Timothy 6:13-17 “I charge you in the presence of God, Who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in His testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will display at the proper time–He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, Who alone has immortality, Who dwells in unapproachable light, Whom no one has ever seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.”
Paul charged Timothy with the sacred duty to love God and love others. Christ Jesus could return at any time. He, alone, is worthy of our love and obedience as He is King of kings and Lord of lords. His holiness and power deserve honor and He will have eternal dominion.
Isaiah 16:5 “. . . then a throne will be established in steadfast love, and on it will sit in faithfulness in the tent of David One who judges and seeks justice and is swift to do righteousness.”
Prayer: Lord, we long for Your return and the righteous rule of Your glorious throne. We love You and give You the honor and obedience due the King of kings. Amen.
