6/26/22 - People That Wander From The Truth
Paul continues to instruct Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:17-18 about the dangers of false teachers who only look for their own gain.
"17 Their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 who have departed from the truth. They say that the resurrection has already taken place, and they destroy the faith of some."
6/12/22 - The Worker of God
The apostle Paul outlines to Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:15-16 how a believer is to not be ashamed in sharing their faith and also about idle chatter.
"15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 16 Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly."
6/5/22 - Quarreling About Words
Continuing through our series in 2 Timothy, today we are looking at 2 Timothy 2:14 and what Paul writes in regard to quarreling about words.
"14 Keep reminding God’s people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen."
5/22/22 - A TRUSTWORTHY SAYING
We continue our series in 2 Timothy, today looking at what Paul writes in 2 Timothy 2:11-13:
"11 Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; 12 if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us; 13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself." (NIV)
5/15/22 - Endure Everything
Continuing our study with 2 Timothy 2:10.

5/1/22 - THE GOSPEL THAT CAUSES SUFFERING
Today we continue with 2 Timothy 2:8-9.
"8 Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, 9 for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained."
4/24/22 - A Soldier, An Athlete and A Farmer
Today we continue in 2 Timothy 2:3-7.
"3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 7 Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this."
2/27/22 - Be Faithful to Christ
Continuing our series of 2 Timothy 1:12-14.
"12 That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day. 13 What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. 14 Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us."

"9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, 10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."
1/23/22 - Fan Into Flame
Continuing our series, we look at 2 Timothy 1:7.
"7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. 8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God."
1/16/22 - Pass on the Faith
