I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4)
Today’s Morsel: In the 90’s, there was a song written about what it would be like if all the cartoon characters got saved, what they would sound like, be like, and look like. I wonder what would happen if all those in authority in our world today got saved. That’s God’s desire. We have to pray that God will open up a door of opportunity for us to share the truth with everyone. As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:34, “Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame." If you look at the world today, you can indeed see that they have no knowledge of God and a great need for the gospel. Another thing is, God is going to hold those of us who know the Truth and don’t share the gospel with them accountable. We must share what we know so that they have the opportunity to know Him. As He told Ezekiel, “When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul” (Ezekiel 3:18-19). We must pray that God will grant an open door for us to share the gospel with everyone, even those in authority, so that they may be saved. Let me encourage you, pray for those in authority today, they need to know Christ.
Sing: Go tell it on the mountain, over the hill and everywhere, go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born.
