2 Timothy 4:9-11, 21 – PEOPLE LESSONS

Those mentioned by Paul at the close of this Epistle teach us some very important Spiritual lessons.

DEMAS – BE SPIRITUAL, LIVE FOR ETERNITY Vs. 10

Philemon 23, 24, Colossians 4:14

LUKE – BE LOYAL, LIVE FOR CONSISTENCY Vs. 11

“Only Luke is with me…”

Proverbs 27:10, 1 Corinthians 4:2

MARK – BE USEFUL, LIVE FOR MINISTRY Vs. 11

“…Take Mark and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.”

What a change! Acts 13:13, Acts 15:36-41

TIMOTHY – BE PUNCTUAL, LIVE FOR IMMEDIACY Vss. 9, 21

Paul had a special need for Timothy as Paul prepared for his homegoing. It was important that Timothy act right away. There are times when we must act immediately to do what needs to be done. In some cases tomorrow is too late!
