â€œFor men will be lovers of selfâ€¦rather than lovers of God.â€ – 2 Timothy 3:2,4
Imagine a time in history when, â€œPeople will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unloving, slanderous, without self-control, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness but denying its power.â€ (What a description of many inside and outside of todayâ€™s churches!)
Does this sound like todayâ€™s world or not? So, when were these words penned? Almost 2,000 years ago in the Word of God. This prediction was prefaced with these haunting words: â€œBut mark this: These will be terrible times in the last days.â€
Sounds like weâ€™re there.
How can we change? Godâ€™s Word says, â€œthe Scriptures are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.â€ So study Godâ€™s Word. Believe what it says about how to be saved from ungodly character. Live what it says, for we all are running out of time.
