Last evening's devotional time was spent reading chapter 3 of 2nd Timothy. I often think that a large portion of scripture was written for the present time and is leading directly to the soon return of Jesus. This scripture describes the state of a large portion of the human race today.
2 Timothy 3: 1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, un... thankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! (NKJV)
Believers and followers of Jesus must remain strong and understand the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus. In Him is your strength and your hope in these the last days.
