2 Timothy 3
Notes on God's Plan
GOD’S PLAN - 1). We are warned that it will be terrible times in the last days. (v.1) Paul lists a long inventory of sins that will run rampant in men during the end times. Essentially, sin will begin to take over and God will count down the moments until he comes back to change everything. In that time, our pressure won’t come from the persecution outside as much as the persecution inside brought on by numerous temptations to sin and fail. 2). The Scriptures teach us about salvation through Jesus. (v.15) This is the Gospel and we must apply it to our lives and then broadcast it to the world. The Bible is a precious gift to us in our age, one that we may take for granted at times considering its perilous journey. We must care for the Scriptures greatly, for they contain the secrets of life. 3). All Scripture is God-Breathed. (v.16,17) A valuable memory verse that teaches us to go to the Scriptures to hear what God is saying and let it change our lives. The Bible prepares us to do God’s work in this world. It is our number one resource for truth and direction.
