Flee The Evil Desires of Youth
Paul had previously encouraged Timothy to not be discouraged by his youth. In a culture that honored age and wisdom, Timothy’s age must have made him feel insecure and vulnerable. In 2 Timothy 2, Paul comes back to Timothy’s age and offers him a warning. Timothy is to flee the evil desires that are too often associated with youth.
In today’s episode, Pastor Jim discusses those youthful desires and how they can rob us of the work God is preparing in us. We also take a closer at pursuing righteousness, faith, love, and peace.
