Jeremiah 9-11, 1 Timothy 1
17 Timothy “To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.”
23Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners- and I am the worst of them.
^Christ has redeemed me and offers that gift to all his followers, what a sweet sweet gift
How have I been shipwrecked in faith? Whether it be the World, a friend, or my own sin or temptations, so often I let the wind that blow in my sails direct me off course in my pursuit for truth and my relationship with God. Lord let me never be “handed over to Satan” so that I be taught a lesson. Keep me guided by the breath of yours Spirit.
“18 This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you fight the good fight, 19 keeping faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith. 20 Among these are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan, so that they will be taught not to blaspheme.”
Absolutely love these chapters. God is so good❤️
9:13 The Lord said, “It is because they abandoned My instruction that I set in front of them and did not obey My voice or walk according to it. 14 Instead, they followed the stubbornness of their hearts and followed after the Baals as their fathers taught them.”
10:23 I know, Lord, that a man’s way of life is not his own; no one who walks determines his own steps.
The Lord could easily demand we follow Him, but He doesn’t. He doesn’t want robots, but obedient & sincere followers. He gave His instruction, and it is our choice to walk in that way or turn to what we understand (deceptively) to be better. And He is always willing to have us back if we humble ourselves and turn to Him.
Fear God not the signs in the heavens or the faces of men.
