1 Timothy 6 (AMP)
6:1 Let all who are under the yoke as bond servants esteem their own [personal] masters worthy of honor and fullest respect, so that the name of God and the teaching [about Him] may not be brought into disrepute and blasphemed.
Father, I lift up those who carry the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Bless them with the stamina to fight the Good fight and to walk a victorious testimony to Glorify your Name, Lord. Refresh their heart with Rejoicing. Heal their battle wounds (physically, emotionally and spiritually) and remove all shame and condemnation (which is from the enemy of the finished works of Christ Jesus). Empower and Affirm these through the Holy Spirit with your Grace, Wisdom and Knowledge. ~amen
6 [And it is, indeed, a source of immense profit, for] godliness accompanied with contentment (that contentment which is a sense of [d]inward sufficiency) is great and abundant gain.
Father, in ALL THINGS we can come before you with a heart of thanksgiving. It is what you wait for, watch for and desire to see in our life. You give us life for your purpose and it is through the Holy Spirit that we receive the gifts; therein we find Godliness with contentment. ~amen
11 But as for you, O man of God, flee from all these things; aim at and pursue righteousness (right standing with God and true goodness), godliness (which is the loving fear of God and being Christlike), faith, love, steadfastness (patience), and gentleness of heart.
12 Fight the good fight of the faith; lay hold of the eternal life to which you were summoned and [for which] you confessed the good confession [of faith] before many witnesses.
13 In the presence of God, Who preserves alive all living things, and of Christ Jesus, Who in His testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I [solemnly] charge you
14 To keep all His precepts unsullied and flawless, irreproachable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Anointed One),
15 Which [appearing] will be shown forth in His own proper time by the blessed, only Sovereign (Ruler), the King of kings and the Lord of lords,
16 Who alone has immortality [in the sense of exemption from every kind of death] and lives in unapproachable light, Whom no man has ever seen or can see. Unto Him be honor and everlasting power and dominion. Amen (so be it).
Father God, let YOUR precepts be on the fore front of our minds and hearts. You are unchanging. You are the Unapproachable Light, the Everlasting Power and there is no one or any dominion of Evil that can stand against the Living God. It was finished on the Cross of Christ Jesus as a testimony of your Unfailing Love. This is the Good News that you have commissioned to be preached and taught to a dying world. We will share Life to those who are in need of a Savior and Healer and bring them the message of the Kingdom of God, which is Eternal Life through your Son, Jesus. Continue to encourage hearts and connect the community of your servants ~ to fight the good fight of the Faith. ~ Amen.
