THE WORD 9-13-2020


by Pastor Greg Simon

The Apostle Paul’s overcoming attitude is evident in the way he describes his personal troubles in 2 Corinthians 4:7-10. If you cannot see good in your future, then the problem is not with God, but with your “seeing”. Too often believers get caught up in contemporary culture’s commitment to comfort, health, and safety. Our current pandemic conditions threaten us all, but we can overcome. In his letter to Timothy, Paul reveals some keys to overcoming. According to verse 14, an 0vercomer: (1) continues in Scripture, (2) learns Scripture, (3) is assured of the Scriptures, and (4) knows his/her teachers. Listen as Pastor Greg teaches from 2 Timothy 3:10-17. This recording was made during the 10AM Service at Valley Fellowship Church in Huntsville, Alabama on September 13, 2020.

“But you have observed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, tolerance, love, patience, persecutions, and afflictions, which came to me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra—what persecutions I endured! But the Lord delivered me out of them all. Yes, and all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But continue in the things that you have learned and have been assured of, knowing those from whom you have learned them, and that since childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through the faith that is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:10-17 MEV)
