Soldier – Athlete – Farmer – Part 7
In our series, “Soldier – Athlete – Farmer,” Pastor Sean takes us through 2 Timothy 2:1-7 looking into the final epistle that Paul wrote before being martyred. This letter was specifically written to Timothy Paul’s son in the faith and now Pastor of the church at Ephesus. Paul shares 3 different professions that are designed to give Timothy understanding concerning his walk with God and his ministry. From these examples, we will glean truth from the Lord for our lives today. Knowledge from the Scriptures multiplies grace and peace in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Tim 2:7 Think over these things I am saying [understand them and grasp their application], for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything. AMP
Part 7– One of the main characteristics of the farmer as stated by the Apostle Paul is that they must be hard working. In today’s message, we discuss proverbs 24:30-34. A farmer cannot be lazy and expect to experience success, a lazy farmer will lose what they have to the thief. As we consider our lives let’s be aware of the thorns and the broken-down walls and then be diligent to work hard to repair those areas.
