2 Timothy 3:1–5

Godlessness in the Last Days

3:1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

(ESV)

2 Timothy 3:14–15

14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom1 you learned it 15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

Hymn : TLH 51 : Now May He Who from the Dead Hymnary.org link

1. Now may He who from the dead 
Brought the Shepherd of the sheep, 
Jesus Christ, our King and Head, 
All our souls in safety keep! 

2. May He teach us to fulfill 
What is pleasing in His sight, 
Perfect us in all His will, 
And preserve us day and night! 

3. To that dear Redeemer’s praise, 
Who the covenant sealed with blood, 
Let our hearts and voices raise 
Loud thanksgivings to our God.
