Looking back at your notes from this week’s teaching, was there anything you heard for the first time, caught your attention, challenged, or confused you?

Having received God’s grace, we are now called to join God in His mission to seek and to save the lost.

Having received God’s grace,…
1. Read 1 Timothy 2:1a (First of all, then..). In verse 1, Paul discusses the aspects of public worship. When he says, “First of all, then…”, what is he stressing, timing or importance? Explain your answer.
a. In remembrance of the grace we have received, what now becomes of primary importance?
b. When you first received God’s grace, how did your life change? …we are now called..
2. Read 1 Timothy 2:1-2. Paul identifies four ways to seek God. Discuss your understanding of each:
a. Supplication
b. Prayers
c. Intercessions
d. Thanksgiving
3. In verse 2, Paul says prayers should be included for kings and all who are in high places. Why does he say that this is important? Do you agree? If so, is this part of your prayer life? If not, why not?
a. Having received God’s grace in our lives, how are we now called to pray for others who have not accepted Jesus?
b. Who else should we pray for, and why? … to join God in His mission,to seek and to save the lost.
4. Read 1 Timothy 2:3-7. In these verses, Paul explains why the elements of worship he outlines in verse one are important. According to these verses, what is important to God?
a. Paul states that God desires all people to be saved. Does this mean that all people will be saved? Why or why not?
b. If it is God’s desire for all people to be saved, what does that say about God?
c. Read 1 John 2:2 and discuss the relationship between that verse and these verses. Do these verses affect how you will pray? In what way?
5. For what purpose does Paul say he was appointed a preacher and an apostle? For what purpose are we called to serve God? If we are on a mission for God, what is that mission?
a. In verse 5, Paul says that “there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus”. Why is it important to understand that there is one God? What is a mediator, and how does Jesus fill that role?
b. Paul says that Jesus “gave Himself as a ransom for all”. Discuss the meaning of this statement and what effect it has on our lives.
c. Paul says he is a “teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth”. What truth is it important for us to know?
