2 Timothy 2
Part 2

Paul’s letter to his “son” Timothy is literally bursting with lessons and challenges for all of us, especially those of us who are in ministry. In 2 Timothy 2, he covers a plethora of areas and I have simplified them into five themes.

In 2 Timothy 1:16-18 Paul praises the family of Onesiphorus for the blessing they, and especially Onesiphorus, had been to him. Have you noticed that in the busyness of our generation we seem to have less and less time to do anything? We especially seem to have less time to be a blessing to others. As believers, shouldn’t we be experts at living for and serving others? How do we do it? Paul’s praise of Onesiphorus can certainly help us to answer that question.

A few weeks ago a missionary did a presentation at our home church. His presentation was enjoyable and helpful and one thing in particular “stood out” to me. It was a phrase that he used twice. He said it when he told of meeting a person who had never heard the name of Jesus Christ and who had certainly never heard of His saving power. He used it again when he told of watching dozens of homeless street children from the warmth and safety of his motel room. His phrase: “It broke my heart!”

Everywhere I go it seems like “revival” is everyone’s favorite topic. And as everyone’s favorite topic, it often means a huge variety of different things to different people.

A month or so ago, I blogged about how to be an Independent Baptist and still get along with each other. Today, I want to share some of the reasons why I wrote the blog.

A few weeks ago I posted Part 1 in the series about “How to be an Independent Baptist and Get Along with Others at the Same Time.” You can read that here if you haven’t done so yet: How to be an Independent Baptist and Get-Along With Others at the Same Time It has been a busy few weeks and I have answered a lot of emails and calls in light of what I first wrote. So forgive me for the delay in posting the concluding thoughts. Here is Part 2:

In the Fall of 1994, Bethlie and I stepped out together to enter a ministry of full-time evangelism. We have traveled thousands of miles and ministered to churches of all sizes in almost every state in the USA and in a half dozen other countries as well. Most of the churches have either been Independent Baptist or were very close to it.

Here is an article written by my good friend Evangelist Rick Flanders. It is powerful. Enjoy!

How many times have you been a part of this scenario? The service starts promptly on time (or not) (and sometimes after a five minute countdown on the big screen)! The choir sings. A song is sung while everyone stands. A greeting is made. A prayer is said. Another song (or two ) is sung. An offering is received. Somewhere in there a list of announcements are given. A special song is presented. A sermon is preached. An invitation is given. Another prayer is said and “you are dismissed.” I have been a part of this several times weekly for most of my life! I am sure many of you have too.

Luke 11 is a passage that deserves our careful consideration. Most of us know it as the “Lord, teach us to pray” passage where Jesus spoke the words that we commonly call “The Lord’s Prayer.” It is a wealth of information, instruction, and encouragement, and I have greatly profited from studying it. There is a word Jesus used in this passage that I think is especially worthy of our consideration. The word is importunity. It involves “relentlessness.” It can include “begging.” It is an important word.
