It ain’t easy…

2 Timothy 4:2-5

2Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 3For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

Wow. What an incredible scripture.

It’s almost like Paul wrote it today. He says people will believe what they want to believe reguardless of the truth. They will turn Christianity into whatever makes them feel good. BUT, we are to be prepared to “correct, rebuke and encourage- with great patience and careful instruction.” 

Its not easy to be a Christian, (thats an understatement), but its truth.  We must press on following our Christ, the great thing is… we never have to do it alone. We are blessed with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Encourage someone today and live out your daily Christian walk with God and those people around you he has blessed you with.
