2 Timothy 3
Notes on God's Character
GOD’S CHARACTER - 1). We serve a powerful God that wants to change us. (v.5) He doesn’t just hope to make us feel better and solve our problems. He wants to make us as He created us to be. Some people would like to allow God access to certain parts of their lives and not others. But God wants all of us, complete access to everything so He change us through and through. His power is limitless, and we must allow it limitless room in our lives. 2). Paul suffered much persecution and suffering. (v.11) God didn’t shield him from the problems, but He did rescue Him in the end. God allows us to go throughs storms for many divine reasons, not the least of which is what it does in maturing and building our faith. But He never does it because He enjoys pain, shown in how He is closely watching and waiting to rescue when the time is right.
