Absorbing God’s Word

”But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.” 2 Timothy 3

Applying God’s Word

This scripture pretty much describes the present times, huh. I wish it were front-page news or even back-page news. Unfortunately, we won’t find it in any of the mainstream news media publications. It makes me want to shake my finger at the world in disgust. Then I go stand in front of the mirror and do it. Yikes!

Some of the scripture, above, describes me in my late thirties and early forties. I was full of myself, proud of my status, a lover of money, possessions, and pleasures rather than a lover of God.

If I can change, there’s hope for all who are living 2 Timothy 3 today. They will eventually realize how empty and dark that world can be. When they do, God will be right there with open arms to show them a more fulfilling lifestyle. That’s where we come in. God uses us to be His open arms.

Accounting of God’s Word

Can I relate to 2 Timothy 3? Am I truly a lover of God today? Who is God using my open arms for?
