September 24 - 2 Timothy 3:10-17
News flash! If you are a believer and follower of Jesus, you can expect persecution. Look at 3:12.
You may ask, “If I can expect it, how do I defend myself in the midst of it?” Paul knew Timothy was taught the Old Testament by his mother and grandmother beginning in his preschool years, then later was taught about Christ and how to live according to his teachings by Paul. In this passage, Paul reminded Timothy not to run away from persecution when it came, rather to continue to live according to the instruction in God’s Word he was taught, knowing that it would “equip him” (3:17) to do what he needed to do.
