Tuesday Morning Recap

Gentlemen,

Tuesday we continued our discussion of 2 Timothy. Our text was 2 Timothy 2:1-7.

“No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs — he wants to please his commanding officer.”

1) Why should we remain strong in our faith?

In this passage Paul gives three examples of what a person with a strong faith looks like. All three share certain characteristics: perseverance, hard work and adherence to the rules.  Bob said that our rule book is the Bible. In the Bible God lays out a blue print for a fulfilled life. Following these rules is not always easy but it is worth it. Bob added that if you love Christ you want to do what pleases Him.

2) What is the purpose of your life?

Paul said that we are to spread the word and the love of Christ.

We discussed whether we have ever suffered or even been made to feel uncomfortable because of our faith.

We noted that if you can’t recall an instance where we have suffered for our faith then perhaps we aren’t living lives that please God.

Terry asked how we can put ourselves in situations where we can witness. Jack said that he has found that if he prays for opportunities God provides them.

Next week 2 Timothy 2:8-13. Consider the following questions:

1) What does it mean to ‘live with Christ’?

2) What does we will ‘Reign with Him’ mean?

3) How do we disown Him?

See you Tuesday.

John
