1 Timothy 3:16

1 Timothy 3_16.jpg

Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:

He appeared in the flesh,
    was vindicated by the Spirit,
was seen by angels,

    was preached among the nations,
was believed on in the world,

    was taken up in glory. – 1 Timothy 3:16

Dear Jesus,

Jesus, you are the source of all true spirituality.  If we didn’t know you we would be destined to be a profound pile of trash when it comes to the inner person.  We’d be boasting of spiritual insight and moral maturity that ultimately leads to death’s dead end without hope or true and lasting peace.  But you have appeared and saved us.  Your life washes ours.  Your message changes our everything.  We are redeemed, loved, forgiven and most of all saved for eternal life.  Now out of thanksgiving I want to love people and grow spiritually.  I just want life the way you intend it for your glory and my good.  So, today make me godly in grace that your godliness creates.

Amen

Pastor Don Patterson

All true spirituality springs from a vehement and clear presentation of the meaning of Jesus Christ.
