To God be the Glory!
June 19, 2020: SOAP #3851: 2Kings 1-3; Psalm 82; 1Timothy 1
Scripture: 1Timothy (NIV) 1:15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners"of whom I am the worst.
16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.
17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Observation: Sharon and I remember Pastor Shurance at the Kailua Church in Hawaii often lead us in singing verse 17 above.
If Paul was writing a song, he might have put it this way: Andre Crouch wrote, 'How can I say thanks for all the things You have done for me; things so undeserved yet You gave to prove your love for meTo God be the glory' https://youtu.be/0iZm9__sJL8
Application: Bob Kilpatrick wrote a simple song I love to sing: 'In my life Lord be glorified, be glorified. It my life Lord be glorified today.'
Prayer: Lord, with Terry MacAlmon I sing, 'You deserve the glory, and the honorYou are great and do miracles so great' And you do them in my life! With full thanksgiving, I dedicate my life to you. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
