Everything I Ever Needed To Know I Learned From 2 Timothy (Part 2 of 2)
In the last days there will come times of difficulty. *** People will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. *** Avoid such people. *** They will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men. *** All who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. *** All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. *** Be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. *** The time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. *** Always be sober-minded *** Endure suffering *** Do the work of an evangelist *** Fulfill your ministry. *** The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. *** To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen. *** The Lord be with your spirit. *** Grace be with you.
