Bible Text: The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 1 Timothy 4:1

Paul especially marked this as a revelation from the Holy Spirit. Paul knew certain dangers would mark the latter times. Because of the danger of the latter times, if Timothy were to remain a faithful minister to God’s people, he must keep a dead approximation on the truth - the faith.

If this were lost, not much else really mattered.

A man may hold all the truths of Christianity, and yet render them of none effect by holding other doctrines which counteract their influence.

Timothy was encouraged to give it his all, to put forth a maximum effort, and by doing so, his progress would be evident to all. Often, progress is not evident because we do not give ourselves entirely to the pursuit of God and His will.

Often we fall short of all we can be for God because we are passive in our Christian life; we simply do not give ourselves entirely. Jesus warned against this passive attitude in the parable of the talents, where the servant who did nothing was severely rebuked. (Matthew 25:14)

Prayer: I pray for someone reading this message that your sins will not enchain you from the truth in Jesus name.
