DAILY READINGS: Numbers 19:1-22; Proverbs 16:1-33; 2 Peter 3:1-18

Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. 1 Timothy 3:16

1 Timothy is all about God’s way of doing things. God has a way that cannot be improved. This is so in every realm. For example, in bringing salvation to the lost, who could have devised and executed a better plan? God ensured that Christ the Saviour would be manifest in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the nations, believed on in the world and, finally, received up into glory. This was a Master-plan! Men cannot improve it. They simply must receive it. —Roy Hill

We may not always see just how the weavings intertwine, But we must
trust the Master’s hand and follow His design. —Author Unknown
