Declarations from 1 Timothy


Chapter 1: I declare that I am filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith. 


Chapter 2: I declare that I pray for all people and for those in authority, like the president and governor. I ask God to help them; I intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 


I declare that Jesus Christ died for my freedom; therefore I walk in freedom every day. Everywhere I go to worship I lift my hands to God, free from anger and controversy. I live my life in faith, love, holiness, and modesty.


Chapter 3: I declare that I conduct myself in a worthy manner, knowing people are watching me. I am faithful, I exercise self-control, I live wisely, and I have guests in my home. I am gentle, I don’t quarrel with others, and I don’t drink too much. I am honest, I have a clear conscience, and I don’t gossip.


Chapter 4: I declare that I am a worthy servant of Jesus Christ; I am nourished by the message of faith and the teachings from the Word of God. I train myself to be godly. I am an example to all believers in what I say, in the way I live, in my love, in my faith, and in my purity.


Chapter 5: I declare that I speak respectfully to all people. I take care of my family members who are in need.  


Chapter 6: I declare that I walk in true godliness and contentment; I do not crave money. I pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. 


I declare that I trust in God, who richly gives me all I need for my enjoyment. I use my money to do good. I am rich in good works and I am generous to those in need. I am always ready to share with others. Through this, I experience true life.
