Title: “Timothy… Complete!!!”
Preached by: Rev. Willis R. Schwichtenberg
Scripture: 2nd Timothy chapters 3-4
The main point of the sermon is about the
“completion” of the church year. Paul wrote in 2nd
Timothy 3:1-4 that these last days will be hard and to
avoid the bad people out there.
completeness means understanding this world
completeness means understanding and using the word of God
completeness means doing what we are called to do
We need to be complete in this world and in the word of the Lord. Evil is present in this world today and we need to be prepared for it. Jesus is the full truth and nothing but the truth. We have to understand that us as Christians who live a godly life will face persecution. We need to follow the word of God when the devil attacks us. Even though we sin daily we ask for forgiveness and know that Jesus died for us and is the leader of the church. He is always with us.
What did I learn?
Hearing this scripture helps me strengthen my understanding of Scripture because Paul tells us to avoid bad people. I feel as if this book was written for my generation, the 21st century.
we need to understand that those who live a godly life in Christ will face prosecution
in the church we don't always get along
the word equips us for life and living
Hearing this sermon helps me understand scripture because all scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness that the man od God may be complete equipped for every good work. This helps my faith because I know that Jesus died on the cross to save me from my sins. This helps my knowledge of Christ because I know that He is the truth and the leader of the church and that He is always there for me.
What would you want someone else to know about this sermon or how does this apply to my life?
I would tell people that Paul, the author practically foreshadowed this generation. He tells us good tips for life. That is just how I think of it.
we can do anything through life. we can get through our homework,work, and any other hard tasks. we help in the church everyday. even the work of God has challenges but when the task is completed the feeling is wonderful. You will feel great when the task is done.
I would want someone else to know that even though there is evil and temptation all around, Jesus is always there for you no matter what is happening in life. We have to stay strong in the scripture of God and ask for forgiveness of our sins and be complete in what we are called to do.
