It is so important for us to run from what the world wants us to do. The devil will try over and over to keep us spinning our wheels in the crap of this world; we can’t get caught up in those things. It is our responsibility to continue to grow and develop our faith daily and be on guard of the things of this world.
Look at Paul’s last statement to Timothy in this chapter. “Timothy, guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge. Some people have wandered from their faith by following such foolishness. May God’s grace be with you all.”
We must know that God wants us to love Him and love others. Our focus should be making a difference by being a light not arguing about things that only matter if we are listening to this world. We can’t wander from what we know and we must keep our eyes on the prize, Jesus Christ, and be aware of all satan’s trickery. As believers of Jesus it is not impossible for us to be deceived by false teaching and worldly temptations; that is why it is so important for us to constantly be seeking God’s wisdom.
Hebrews chapter 4 verse 12 says, “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edge sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” We must study His word, learn to live it and let it pierce our hearts so we desire true change. Then we will continue to do what we are called to do as we pursue Christ and glorifying God. Amen
