Be Instant in Season
2 Timothy 4

 
1I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
 2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
 5But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
 6For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
 7I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
 8Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
 9Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me:
 10For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.
 11Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.
 12And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.
 13The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments.
 14Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:
 15Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.
 16At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.
 17Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
 18And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
 19Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.
 20Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick.
 21Do thy diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren.
 22The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.

Today's Scripture Meaning 

 
The apostle solemnly charges Timothy to be diligent, though many will not bear sound doctrine. (1-5) Enforces the charge from his own martyrdom, then at hand. (6-8) Desires him to come speedily. (9-13) He cautions, and complains of such as had deserted him; and expresses his faith as to his own preservation to the heavenly kingdom. (14-18) Friendly greetings and his usual blessing. (19-22)
Verses 1-5: People will turn away from the truth, they will grow weary of the plain gospel of Christ, they will be greedy of fables, and take pleasure in them. People do so when they will not endure that preaching which is searching, plain, and to the purpose. Those who love souls must be ever watchful, must venture and bear all the painful effects of their faithfulness, and take all opportunities of making known the pure gospel.
Verses 6-8: The blood of the martyrs, though not a sacrifice of atonement, yet was a sacrifice of acknowledgment to the grace of God and his truth. Death to a good man, is his release from the imprisonment of this world, and his departure to the enjoyments of another world. As a Christian, and a minister, Paul had kept the faith, kept the doctrines of the gospel. What comfort will it afford, to be able to speak in this manner toward the end of our days! The crown of believers is a crown of righteousness, purchased by the righteousness of Christ. Believers have it not at present, yet it is sure, for it is laid up for them. The believer, amidst poverty, pain, sickness, and the agonies of death, may rejoice; but if the duties of a man's place and station are neglected, his evidence of interest in Christ will be darkened, and uncertainty and distress may be expected to cloud and harass his last hours.
Verses 9-13: The love of this world, is often the cause of turning back from the truths and ways of Jesus Christ. Paul was guided by Divine inspiration, yet he would have his books. As long as we live, we must still learn. The apostles did not neglect human means, in seeking the necessaries of life, or their own instruction. Let us thank the Divine goodness in having given us so many writings of wise and pious men in all ages; and let us seek that by reading them our profiting may appear to all.
Verses 14-18: There is as much danger from false brethren, as from open enemies. It is dangerous having to do with those who would be enemies to such a man as Paul. The Christians at Rome were forward to meet him, (Ac 28), but when there seemed to be a danger of suffering with him, then all forsook him. God might justly be angry with them, but he prays God to forgive them. The apostle was delivered out of the mouth of the lion, that is, of Nero, or some of his judges. If the Lord stands by us, he will strengthen us in difficulties and dangers, and his presence will more than supply every one's absence.
Verses 19-22: We need no more to make us happy, than to have the Lord Jesus Christ with our spirits; for in him all spiritual blessings are summed up. It is the best prayer we can offer for our friends, that the Lord Jesus Christ may be with their spirits, to sanctify and save them, and at last to receive them to himself. Many who believed as Paul, are now before the throne, giving glory to their Lord: may we be followers of them. 

Today's Scripture Application

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the book of 2nd Timothy with Chapter 4 and in our text we see Paul finishing this letter to Timothy explaining for Him to always be ready to preach the Gospel for the day is coming when it will fall on deaf ears. In making application we need to be ready to share the Gospel with all we come in contact. We are living in the last days and multitudes are going astray but we have the truth that will change lives if we simple share the truth with a lost and dying world, one soul at a time. How about you? Are you instant in season? Let us learn from our text today and the reminder of Paul that in the last days many will go astray but we need to be instant in season - meaning we need to be ready to share the Gospel to all the Lord brings in our path for time is short before our Lord returns.

Hold Fast to the Word of God
2 Timothy 3
 
 
1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
 6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
 7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
 8Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
 9But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was.
 10But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
 11Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
 12Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
 13But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
 14But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
 15And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Today's Scripture Meaning:
 
The apostle foretells the rise of dangerous enemies to the gospel. (1-9) Proposes his own example to Timothy. (10-13) And exhorts him to continue in the doctrine he had learned from the Holy Scriptures. (14-17)
Verses 1-9: Even in gospel times there would be perilous times; on account of persecution from without, still more on account of corruptions within. Men love to gratify their own lusts, more than to please God and do their duty. When every man is eager for what he can get, and anxious to keep what he has, this makes men dangerous to one another. When men do not fear God, they will not regard man. When children are disobedient to their parents, that makes the times perilous. Men are unholy and without the fear of God, because unthankful for the mercies of God. We abuse God's gifts, if we make them the food and fuel of our lusts. Times are perilous also, when parents are without natural affection to children. And when men have no rule over their own spirits, but despise that which is good and to be honoured. God is to be loved above all; but a carnal mind, full of enmity against him, prefers any thing before him, especially carnal pleasure. A form of godliness is very different from the power; from such as are found to be hypocrites, real Christians must withdraw. Such persons have been found within the outward church, in every place, and at all times. There ever have been artful men, who, by pretences and flatteries, creep into the favour and confidence of those who are too easy of belief, ignorant, and fanciful. All must be ever learning to know the Lord; but these follow every new notion, yet never seek the truth as it is in Jesus. Like the Egyptian magicians, these were men of corrupt minds, prejudiced against the truth, and found to be quite without faith. Yet though the spirit of error may be let loose for a time, Satan can deceive the nations and the churches no further, and no longer, than God will permit.
Verses 10-13: The more fully we know the doctrine of Christ, as taught by the apostles, the more closely we shall cleave to it. When we know the afflictions of believers only in part, they tempt us to decline the cause for which they suffer. A form of godliness, a profession of Christian faith without a godly life, often is allowed to pass, while open profession of the truth as it is in Jesus, and resolute attention to the duties of godliness, stir up the scorn and enmity of the world. As good men, by the grace of God, grow better, so bad men, through the craft of Satan, and the power of their own corruptions, grow worse. The way of sin is down-hill; such go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. Those who deceive others, deceive themselves, as they will find at last, to their cost. The history of the outward church, awfully shows that the apostle spake this as he was moved by the Holy Ghost.
Verses 14-17: Those who would learn the things of God, and be assured of them, must know the Holy Scriptures, for they are the Divine revelation. The age of children is the age to learn; and those who would get true learning, must get it out of the Scriptures. They must not lie by us neglected, seldom or never looked into. The Bible is a sure guide to eternal life. The prophets and apostles did not speak from themselves, but delivered what they received of God, (2Pe 1:21). It is profitable for all purposes of the Christian life. It is of use to all, for all need to be taught, corrected, and reproved. There is something in the Scriptures suitable for every case. Oh that we may love our Bibles more, and keep closer to them! then shall we find benefit, and at last gain the happiness therein promised by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the main subject of both Testaments. We best oppose error by promoting a solid knowledge of the word of truth; and the greatest kindness we can do to children, is to make them early to know the Bible

Today's Scripture Application

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the book of 2nd Timothy with Chapter 3 and in our text we see Paul warning us of the sinfulness in the last days which will cause difficulty in our Christian Service. Paul charges Timothy to hold fast to the truth of Scriptures as Christians will suffer persecution. In making application we see that Christians will suffer persecution in these last days and we are to hold fast to the Word of God in the days ahead. How about you? Do you hold Fast to the Word of God? Let us learn from our text today and the instruction of Paul that in the last days we will suffer persecution and the key to walk through this tough time is to Hold Fast to the Word of God which is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

Be a Good Vessel
2 Timothy 2

  
Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.1
 2And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
 3Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
 4No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
 5And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
 6The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
 7Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
 8Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:
 9Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.
 10Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
 11It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
 12If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
 13If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
 14Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
 15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
 16But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
 17And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
 18Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
 19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
 20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
 21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
 22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
 23But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
 24And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
 25In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
 26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Today's Scripture Meaning 

 
The apostle exhorts Timothy to persevere with diligence, like a soldier, a combatant, and a husbandman. (1-7) Encouraging him by assurances of a happy end of his faithfulness. (8-13) Warnings to shun vain babblings and dangerous errors. (14-21) Charges to flee youthful lusts, and to minister with zeal against error, but with meekness of spirit. (22-26)
Verses 1-7: As our trials increase, we need to grow stronger in that which is good; our faith stronger, our resolution stronger, our love to God and Christ stronger. This is opposed to our being strong in our own strength. All Christians, but especially ministers, must be faithful to their Captain, and resolute in his cause. The great care of a Christian must be to please Christ. We are to strive to get the mastery of our lusts and corruptions, but we cannot expect the prize unless we observe the laws. We must take care that we do good in a right manner, that our good may not be spoken evil of. Some who are active, spend their zeal about outward forms and doubtful disputations. But those who strive lawfully shall be crowned at last. If we would partake the fruits, we must labour; if we would gain the prize, we must run the race. We must do the will of God, before we receive the promises, for which reason we have need of patience. Together with our prayers for others, that the Lord would give them understanding in all things, we must exhort and stir them up to consider what they hear or read.
Verses 8-13: Let suffering saints remember, and look to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of their faith, who for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, despised the shame, and is now set down at the right hand of the throne of God. We must not think it strange if the best men meet with the worst treatment; but this is cheering, that the word of God is not bound. Here we see the real and true cause of the apostle's suffering trouble in, or for, the sake of the gospel. If we are dead to this world, its pleasures, profits, and honours, we shall be for ever with Christ in a better world. He is faithful to his threatenings, and faithful to his promises. This truth makes sure the unbeliever's condemnation, and the believer's salvation.
Verses 14-21: Those disposed to strive, commonly strive about matters of small moment. But strifes of words destroy the things of God. The apostle mentions some who erred. They did not deny the resurrection, but they corrupted that true doctrine. Yet nothing can be so foolish or erroneous, but it will overturn the temporary faith of some professors. This foundation has two writings on it. One speaks our comfort. None can overthrow the faith of any whom God hath chosen. The other speaks our duty. Those who would have the comfort of the privilege, must make conscience of the duty Christ gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, (Tit 2:14). The church of Christ is like a dwelling: some furniture is of great value; some of smaller value, and put to meaner uses. Some professors of religion are like vessels of wood and earth. When the vessels of dishonour are cast out to be destroyed, the others will be filled with all the fulness of God. We must see to it that we are holy vessels. Every one in the church whom God approves, will be devoted to his Master's service, and thus fitted for his use.
Verses 22-26: The more we follow that which is good, the faster and the further we shall flee from that which is evil. The keeping up the communion of saints, will take us from fellowship with unfruitful works of darkness. See how often the apostle cautions against disputes in religion; which surely shows that religion consists more in believing and practising what God requires, than in subtle disputes. Those are unapt to teach, who are apt to strive, and are fierce and froward. Teaching, not persecution, is the Scripture method of dealing with those in error. The same God who gives the discovery of the truth, by his grace brings us to acknowledge it, otherwise our hearts would continue to rebel against it. There is no "peradventure," in respect of God's pardoning those who do repent; but we cannot tell that he will give repentance to those who oppose his will. Sinners are taken in a snare, and in the worst snare, because it is the devil's; they are slaves to him. And if any long for deliverance, let them remember they never can escape, except by repentance, which is the gift of God; and we must ask it of him by earnest, persevering prayer

Today's Scripture Application

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the book of 2nd Timothy with Chapter 2 and in our text we see Paul comparing the believer to be a good solider and good worker as to be not ashamed, not afraid of opposition. He says we can be good vessels used for honor or bad vessels for dishonor and that we have have a responsibility as believers to study and obey the Word of God directed by His Spirit. How about you? Are you a vessel of honor? Let us learn from our text today and the reminder of Paul that we are to be good workers equipped from the Word of God to follow the Spirit of God - so that we will be vessels of honor, fit for the masters use, prepared for unto every good work.
