Read the Bible through with Yellow Creek Baptist Church:

1Ti 1:1
  Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope, 
1Ti 1:2  To Timothy my true son in the faith: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 
Warning Against False Teachers
1Ti 1:3  As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer 
1Ti 1:4  or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith. 
1Ti 1:5  The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 
1Ti 1:6  Some have departed from these and have turned to meaningless talk. 
1Ti 1:7  They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm. 
1Ti 1:8  We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. 
1Ti 1:9  We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 
1Ti 1:10  for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 
1Ti 1:11  that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me. 
Christ Jesus Came to Save Sinners
1Ti 1:12  I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. 
1Ti 1:13  Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. 
1Ti 1:14  The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 
1Ti 1:15  Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 
1Ti 1:16  But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. 
1Ti 1:17  Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen. 
1Ti 1:18  Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, 
1Ti 1:19  holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith. 
1Ti 1:20  Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme. 

 Pray for All People
1Ti 2:1
  I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 
1Ti 2:2  for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 
1Ti 2:3  This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 
1Ti 2:4  who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 
1Ti 2:5  For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 
1Ti 2:6  who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. 
1Ti 2:7  And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a true and faithful teacher of the Gentiles. 
1Ti 2:8  Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. 
1Ti 2:9  I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, 
1Ti 2:10  but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God. 
1Ti 2:11  A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 
1Ti 2:12  I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. 
1Ti 2:13  For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 
1Ti 2:14  And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 
1Ti 2:15  But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety. (NIV)

Pray to the Lord

Yours in Christ,
