2 Timothy 4:1-2 CHECKING ON THE PREACHER

2 Timothy 4:1-2 – I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; [2] Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

IS HE PREPARED? – be instant in season, out of season;

DOES HE CORRECT? – reprove, rebuke,

DOES HE ENCOURAGE? – exhort with all longsuffering

DOES HE TEACH? – doctrine.
