1 Timothy 1:17

“Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

The psalmist writes in Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” Here in Timothy, we have a beautiful example of Paul stopping to worship his King.  He uses very similar words to praise God in his other letters often, which suggests that these aspects of God are meaningful to Paul.  Then, he ends the phrase with “Amen.”  There’s a break and pause, where Paul is caught up in the excitement of God that he begins to worship.
