Get Out Those Bath Crayons

1-3The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.
4-7He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we've learned: that there's one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us—Jesus, who offered himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free. Eventually the news is going to get out. This and this only has been my appointed work: getting this news to those who have never heard of God, and explaining how it works by simple faith and plain truth.

Do you ever wonder what your purpose is, why you're here? Well, there you have it, plain and simple, right from Paul to Timothy and straight from the voice of God to our eyes and ears.

When I got home from vacation, I got a fresh look at my shower wall. I think I need to add some names. How about you?
