Though written nearly 2,000 years ago, Paul’s letters contain timeless truths and practical advice that are still highly relevant for Christians today. His letters are essential writings that provide the modern church with a solid theological and historical foundation. We can gain wisdom for living out our faith today. If you haven’t already, take time to read through these passages and share below what stands out to you from them.

Here are 3 lessons learned and insights from 1 Thessalonians 5 – 1 Timothy 3.

Do People Know You are a Believer?

In 2 Thessalonians 1 Paul talks about how they boast about the Thessalonians to others as their faith demonstrated is clear evidence that they stood firm in faith. Does your life clearly demonstrate your faith in God and would people know you are a believer? Read the passage and be encouraged in this devotional.

You are Worthy

Ever feel like you are unworthy and that no one could love you or care for you? You are not alone. We have all felt that way before but the great news is that Christ still finds you worthy. In fact He loved you so much He died for you. Take time to read 1 Timothy 1 today and watch this devotional to be encouraged.

Pray for Those in Leadership Positions

Who do you pray for? While it may be easy to pray for your family, friends and those close to you, there are other people and groups of people you can pray for. In particular, Paul calls us to pray for those in leadership positions and those in governing positions in 1 Timothy 2. Read the passage and watch this devotional to be encouraged.
