Warning Against Falling Away From Love

2 Tim. 3:1-5

Like the pilot who informed his passengers “fasten your belt” Paul had informed Timothy in his last letter to him at the church in Ephesus. The last days include the entire Christian era. Paul prophesied among other things that people would be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, without love, lover of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof. Have nothing to do with this set of people. Paul issued these warnings in order to fortify the ministers and the Christians. Unfortunately, the Ephesians church fell away from their first love for Christ.

Point Of Emphasis:        People will be lovers of pleasure than lovers of God. Having a form of Godliness but denying the power thereof.

Prayer Point:                  Lord, I will not deny Your power because of the pleasure of life in Jesus’ name

AVERTISSEMENT CONTRE LE FAIT DE TOMBER LOIN DE LA CHARITE
2TIM. 3 :1-5

A l’instar du pilote qui informe ses passagers d’attacher leurs ceintures de sécurité, Paul avait informé Timothée dans sa dernière épître qu’il lui a adressée à l’église d’Ephèse. Les derniers jours incluent l’ère chrétienne toute entière. Paul prophétisa parmi tant d’autres choses que les gens seront égoïstes, amis de l’argent, insensibles, aimant le plaisir plus que Dieu, ayant l’apparence de la piété mais reniant ce qui en fait la force. Eloigne-toi de ce groupe de gens.  Paul  lança ces avertissements dans le but de fortifier les ministres et les chrétiens. Malheureusement, l’église des Ephésiens tomba loin de leur premier amour pour Christ.

Point essentiel : Les hommes aimeront le plaisir plus que Dieu, ayant l’apparence de la piété mais reniant ce qui en fait la force.

Axe de prière : Seigneur, je ne nierai pas ta puissance à cause du plaisir du monde au nom de Jésus.
