Today we read the third chapter of the Apostle Paul’s first letter to Timothy and two chapters of Jeremiah
September 17: 1 Timothy 3, Jeremiah 9, Jeremiah 10 (click on the chapter to begin reading).
1 Timothy 3. The Apostle Paul defined the qualifications of overseers and deacons, then he “waxed eloquent” about the great mystery of godliness. It is still a great mystery, but I like it and accept it by faith.
Jeremiah 9. “The weeping prophet” Jeremiah mourned for the people and the people mourned as they received judgment.
Jeremiah 10. The fight is spiritual: God versus idols. Yet, Jeremiah prophesied about the coming captivity of Judah, which led to Jeremiah’s prayer.
