9-16-13 — Christians Are Praying People

1 Timothy 2:1-4
First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Christians are to be praying people. Not only are their lives to be characterized by prayer, but prayer for all. There is no person so far from God’s reach that we should not pray. For our text tells us that God desires all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. And prayer for them is one means of grace that God uses to reach the seemingly unreachable.

The highest calling of the Christian is simply to live a quiet peaceful life, and to be godly. For this type of individual reflects the very character and qualities of God himself. This is yet another means of grace that God uses to reach the seemingly unreachable.
