Bible Text:

1 Timothy 2:1-7

1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3 This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.    7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Reflection & Application

1 Timothy 2:1-4 

  • How does v. 4 address common doubts and misconceptions about God’s “fairness”?  
  • What implication does v. 4 have on the way that I view my role and calling in life?  How does this challenge the way that I view people that I encounter?  

1 Timothy 2:6

  • A ransom is the price given to free a slave.  What are the implications of the fact that Christ has given himself as a ransom for me, and what is it that he has freed me from?  In what ways can I live out the freedom he died to win for me?

1 Timothy 2:7 

  • What hinders me from fully affirming the same life purpose as Apostle Paul?
