This morning we begin reading the book of 1 Timothy, which is a letter written by Paul to the young early church leader Timothy. This letter is full of encouragement and instruction that can be applied by any believer today. Paul was a great encourager and teacher of young believers in the faith and he was also a great example of how we should act and feel about our relationship with Christ. One of the great things about Paul is how he was so easily moved by God’s love, mercy, and grace in his life. In 1 Timothy 1:17 Paul is so moved by God’s love that he is able to praise Him instantaneously, Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen. We should all be moved by our only true eternal King and by His great mercy and love for us.
