A SERVANT

A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants. —II Timothy 2:24-26

Are you a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ? Then you must not quarrel but be kind to everyone. You are to be a teacher and be patient with difficult people. You are to gently instruct those who oppose the truth. This is the part we are to take as servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. Then “perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.”

Those who do not know Jesus are in the devil’s trap and are not thinking correctly. Their minds are not sound. You can have the most intelligent person on the planet, but they are not thinking correctly if they do not know Jesus. They will not have the proper application of the knowledge they have and surely will not be praising God for what He has given them. No, those who do not know Jesus are being held captive by Satan to do his will, to do whatever he wants them to do. The only escape they have is to hear the Word of God and trust the Lord Jesus Christ. As servants of the Lord Jesus Christ we are to bring the Word of God to them. May we be faithful in this! Someone was faithful to do this for us. We heard the Word of God from someone and escaped! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbe7OruLk8I

Dear Father, may I teach and instruct others who do not know Jesus that You might change their hearts. May I do my part and trust You to change people. May this be so in the authority of Jesus and by Your Holy Spirit’s power.
