Verse for Today - I Timothy 2:5,6 (Click to read mini-blog)
"For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time."
Read all of 1 Timothy 2
This verse says a lot. There is One God. Ever important to remember... the doctrine of the Trinity is not something we can gloss over or relegate to the past. It is rooted... grounded in the pages of Scripture. There is one God... and one Mediator between God and man... the man Jesus Christ. This Man... is the second person of the God-head. He is revealed as both true God and true and righteous man. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (John 1:1).
What do we do? We hold to the Truth as it's revealed in Scripture... we compare Scripture with Scripture... and believe what it says. Sometimes we hold parallel truths that might seem contradictory or are at least beyond our ability to grasp. That's OK. Our minds or intellects are not the standard by which God or His Word are judged. Sometimes (actually always) we just need bow our heads and bend our knees in worship.
Then--and only then--have we really listened a right.
