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.
(1 Timothy 2:5-6 (NIV))
Sometimes it is so easy to see the hand of God moving. The last 30 seconds and this verse are a very good example of just that!
I have multiple different sources that I look to in order to find what I will write about. I often will look online at a popular Bible software site, and that is what I chose to do today. This passage was the passage of the day. I did not feel that this passage was what I wanted to write about, so I turned to one of my long lists of notes and randomly stopped on one without looking. I am certain that you can already see what is coming!
It was the very same verse and translation!
All right, God. I get it!
Is there anything about this passage that jumps right out at you? To me, there are several. First and foremost is the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus in which He gave himself as a random for all people. Probably the most intriguing part of this passage is the last sentence.
The proper time!
Just as it appears that it is the proper time for me to talk about this passage, there are also proper times that have happened and will happen according to God’s plan.
Jesus came at the proper time.
He was witnessed about at the proper time.
He will return at the proper time.
Will you be ready when He returns? What if He returns tonight? Will you be ready at the proper time?
