Remain Faithful

2 Timothy 3: Remain Faithful: The Charm of Home

The time to prepare is now.
10 But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is. You know my faith, my patience, my love, and my endurance. 11 You know how much persecution and suffering I have endured. You know all about how I was persecuted in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra—but the Lord rescued me from all of it. 12 Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil people and impostors will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.
2 Timothy 3:10-13

Many of us will suffer for holding true to the scriptures.
14 But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you.15 You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
2 Timothy 3:14-17

The battle has already been won by Christ but, Satan will have his time here on earth and you will have to persevere through it.

All glory and honor to my Lord Jesus Christ,
Sherry

These are some powerful scriptures my friend. We are living in the evil days when we who call ourselves christians will suffer persecution. Be of good cheer, Jesus has overcome the world.
