EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

2 Timothy 3:10-17
2 Timothy 4:9-10 “Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me: For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.”
From these scriptures, we can see that Timothy was with Paul to the end of his ministry. God did not call Timothy away from Paul. But you will hear some youths in Timothy's shoes say, “Eh, God gave me greater revelation. In fact, in my ministry with Paul, I was actually the key man that God called.
Didn't you hear that there were prophecies on me? You didn't hear that I have preached the gospel and laid hands upon men?” That is the language of stubborn youths, rebellious youths that have left the cause of Jesus. Do not let your ambition affect the gospel of Christ.
Your ambition will affect the gospel of Christ if you are not fully committed; if all that is in your mind is to establish your own ministry. In their quest to break off, they start to spread lies against their leader and the ministry they are serving just as they also did in Holiness Revival Movement.
They tell all sorts of lies to get sympathy and gather followers. They want to establish their own movement. Maybe they will call it “The Holiest Movement On Earth.” When they are asked, “What happened to Holiness Revival Movement that you once belonged to,” they will reply, “The Lord told me that he is no more there.
The Lord told me His spirit has left Holiness Revival Movement. The Lord told me they are committing sin there. In fact, Holiness Revival Movement is in the hands of man now.” Is it true that Holiness Revival Movement is no more in the hands of Jesus? They are liars looking for relevance. Do not be like them.
Thought for the day:
Be like Timothy who served Paul faithfully.
Song for the day:
Until I reach my home (2x), I will never stop my journey half way…
Bible reading for the day:
Job 1-3; Acts 7:1-19
