Holding fast to Life Eternal

Scripture reading for January 11th: 1st Timothy 6

Key Scriptures: 1st Timothy 6:12-16 “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 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 ends his letter to Timothy where it began in the first chapter. He encouraged Timothy to hold fast to eternal life by living by faith. He encouraged him to live a holy life in expectation of Jesus’ promised return and ended with worship of the King of kings and Lord of lords! Honor and eternal dominion are found in Him alone! He dwells in unapproachable light and is without beginning or end! What a blessed Lord we serve!

Leviticus 11:44 “For I am the Lord your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy for I am holy.”

Faith confession and prayer: Lord Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God, crucified for my sins, buried in a tomb, raised on the third day to eternal glory at God’s right hand. I praise and worship You as King and Lord! Give me grace to hold fast to eternal Life and enjoy eternal pleasure with You!

Psalm 16:11 “You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

Resting in Jesus for Holiness!

Scripture reading for February 20th:  Leviticus 8-11, Psalm 110, Hebrews 4

Key Scriptures:  Hebrews 4:11-13  “Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.  For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.  And no creature is hidden from His sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”

Nothing is hidden from our Lord, visible or invisible.  There is no place where we can hide or nothing that will cover up any sin or disobedience to God’s eternal Word.  The Word of God is alive and active.  It is able to search out the hidden places of our hearts and inner man.  Our only hope of holiness is to confess sin and repent, resting our hope on the Word of God that speaks mercy through Jesus and His shed blood.

Faith Confession and prayer:  I rest in the shed blood of Jesus Christ and God’s Word promising forgiveness and cleansing to all who come to Jesus.  Lord, help me to preach the whole Word of God to each person and congregation that they might rest in Jesus.

Leviticus 11:44  “For I am the Lord your God.  Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy.”  

Psalm 110:3  “Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of Your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of Your youth will be Yours.”
