Paul writing to Timothy to encourage him as bishop of Ephesus. Just because a person has a position of authority, doesn’t mean that they don’t struggle with their own salvation. We try to be constant in the faith, but we gather in church to be inspired, encouraged and have our faith emboldened to live in this world. Paul tells Timothy with all supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks to be made for all men, for kings and for all 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. God wanting all men to come unto the knowledge of the truth and be saved. For there is one God and one mediator between God and man Christ Jesus. So, Paul writes to Timothy and the church on how to live a godly life in that century and ours.
