“For men will be lovers of self…rather than lovers of God…” – 2 Timothy 3:2, 4
Imagine a time in history, when “people 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.” Doesn’t this sound like today’s world…even describing many inside and outside of today’s churches!
When were these words penned? Almost 2,000 years ago… in the Word of God. This prediction was prefaced with these haunting words: “But realize this: that in the last days difficult times will come” (2 Timothy 3:1).
Sounds like we’re there.
How can we change? God’s Word says, “The Scriptures are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.” So study God’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.
