2 Timothy 2:23-25

 

images-5

We are in a time when we as the followers of Christ should pay special attention to this passage in 2 Timothy 2:23-25
“Excuse yourself from any conversations that turn into foolish and uninformed debates because you know they only provoke fights.  As the Lord’s slave, you shouldn’t exhaust yourself in bickering; instead, be gentle—no matter who you are dealing with—ready and able to teach, tolerant without resentment,  gently instructing those who stand up against you. Besides, the time may come when God grants them a change of heart so that they can arrive at the full knowledge of truth.”

Ready and able to teach

Tolerant without resentment

Gently instructing those who stand up against you.

Because the time may come when God grants them a change of heart,  and you may be the one He uses to help them arrive at the full understanding of truth.

Amen

  1. it’s a huge, monumental, almost cellular shift when we realize *I* am not responsible for drawing people to Christ – that is the Holy Spirit’s job. my job is simply to tell the truth in love. i do not ‘win’ them … i am simply the vessel.
