This portion seems to fit the bill for an interesting time in our country’s history. Just so stinkin’ grateful that our God desires for us all to understand the truth: Jesus is the only way that we can be close to God, and being close to God is the only way our lives can reflect godliness. Praying that Jesus would become a big deal for us all today.
“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.
Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.
For there is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone.” [1 Timothy 2:1-5]
