This Time Tomorrow Study Notes (Week of 11/4)

THIS TIME TOMORROW – 2 TIMOTHY

Date: Week of November 4, 2018
Time: Week 8
Scripture: 2 Timothy 4:1-5
 
Introduction Questions
  • What barriers do you see in culture, and in yourself do you see inhibiting the sharing of the gospel?
  • Background
  • Evangelism. The word sends panic or disinterest into the lives of many. As Paul wraps up his last words to Timothy, he challenges Timothy to be one who uses God’s word with effectiveness, especially in sharing the good news of the gospel.
 
Observation
Read through 2 Timothy 4:1-5
  • What words come to your mind as you read this section? What words trouble you?
  • Paul focuses on two things in this section. What are they?
  • Why are they important for Paul to mention to Timothy?
  • What are the five commands Paul gives to Timothy? How would rank them in order of importance? Why are they crucial?
  • What does Paul mean when he says, “in season and out of season?”
 
Read v3,4
  • What does Paul warn Timothy will happen? When and why will this happen?
  • From your reading, what “itching ears” teachings do you think Paul has in mind?
  • What does Paul encourage Timothy to do well?
 
Interpretation
  • How often do we dwell on the “future things” of Christ? How can thinking about these things impact our lives today?
  • Out of the five commands Paul gives Timothy, which ones do we struggle with the least? The most? Why do you think that is the case for you?
  • If you had to share the gospel (and we all do) are your prepared? Notice Paul doesn’t say we need to be confident, just prepared.
  • Do I view some? All? None? Of scripture as the intentional, direct word of God? Does my life reflect my view of scripture?
  • What “itching ears” teachings attracts you?
  • Am I fulfilling my ministry? Have I taken the time to discover my ministry?
 
Application (choose several to discuss and do)
  • Practice sharing the gospel message. Pray for the opportunity to do so this week
Preparation for next meeting
  • Read Through 2 Timothy 4:6-8

Please pray for the Youth Group.  The Senior High have brought in 16 new students this year.  Please pray for their salvation and they feel the Lord’s embrace as they continue to learn.

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL: Sundays at 9am in RBC Great Room “Discipleship That Changes Everything”; Take part in guided discussions on topics pertinent to becoming “whole-life” disciples; Goal: Greater involvement in the lives of others both at home and around the world!  “So the greatest issue facing the world today, with all its heart-breaking needs, is whether those who, by profession or culture, are identified as “Christians” will become disciples – students, apprentices, practitioners – of Jesus Christ, steadily learning from him how to live the life of the Kingdom of the Heavens into every corner of human existence. Will they break out of the churches to be his Church – to be, without human force or violence, his mighty force for good on earth, drawing the churches after them toward the eternal purposes of God?” – Dallas Willard .God chose us, ordinary people to make a difference in this world!

This Time Tomorrow Study Notes (Week of 10/28)

THIS TIME TOMORROW – 2 TIMOTHY

Date: Week of October 28, 2018
Time: Week 7
Scripture: 2 Timothy 3:10-17
 
Introduction Questions
How will people remember you? When people look back on your life, what one or two things will they was true of you? How do you respond when suffering come? Do you fight or flee from the suffering? From God?
 
Background
Persecution. Hardship. Suffering. These words don’t roll off the tongue easily to the modern person. Comfort. Convenience. Compatibility. Paul is encouraging Timothy to remain true to his faith and God in spite of what he may face. He reminds Timothy of his own suffering as an example to Timothy that he will face suffering, and he can endure it.
 
Observation
Read through 2 Timothy 3:10-17.
  • What words come to your mind as you read through this section? What words trouble you?
  • V10-11- Why do you think Paul uses his own life as an example to Timothy? Is this helpful or arrogant?
  • If we are saved by grace, why does our way of life matter? Read Titus 1:15-16 for more help.
Read 3:11-13
Paul references three separate occasions where he endures suffering. Acts 13:42-52, 14:1-7, Acts 14:8-20.
  • How would these examples encourage/discourage Timothy? Us?
  • What is Paul’s perspective and attitude about suffering
  • Do I see suffering for following Christ as a possibility in my life?
Read 3:14-17
  • How does Paul’s view of scripture align with, or is contrary to my own?
  • What is the significance of scripture being “God breathed?” How would you describe that practically to someone?
  • How does Paul describe the purpose of scripture? How have we experienced each of these functions?
 
Interpretation
Think through, discuss your view of persecution/ suffering for being a follower of Jesus. How does your view align with Paul’s understanding of persecution?
  • Do I view some? All? None? Of scripture as the intentional, direct word of God? Does my life reflect my view of scripture?
  • Application (choose several to discuss and do)
  • How does this section challenge me in my view of suffering? If I have never experienced persecution for my faith, does that say something about how I have been living?
  • How will this section change my view, my use of scripture in my own life?
Preparation for next meeting
Read Through 2 Timothy 4:1-5
 


This Time Tomorrow Study Notes (Week of 10/21)

THIS TIME TOMORROW – 2 TIMOTHY

Date: Week of October 21, 2018

Time: Week 6

Scripture: 2 Timothy 3:1-9

Introduction Questions

We have heard the phrase, “the best is yet to come.” As you look around today, do you believe that to be true? What do you see around you that causes you to believe that to be true, or not true?

Background

Paul gets serious with Timothy in these verses. He has warned him about false teachers and the trouble they can cause. Here he steps up his warning to Timothy about the kind of harm they can do, and describe the character and nature of these teachers. Paul gives some very serious warnings to Timothy, and us, about those who appear to be true disciples, and those who are masquerading as disciples.

Observation
Read through 2 Timothy 3:1-9
Paul tells Timothy we are in “the last days.” Some teachers throughout history have described the times they were living in as, “the last days.” In Acts 2:17, “the last days” marks the coming of the Holy Spirit and describes the age of the church from that point, to the time when Christ will return.
  • How does Paul describe these false teachers? Why does he list, “lovers of self” first among their characteristics?
  • How does being a “lover of self” form the root of our sin? Be specific in your reasons.
  • V5- “having a form of godliness”
  • What was Paul talking about as he describes the false teachers
  • In this way?
  • What harm were they doing?
  • The “weak willed women” he mentions were probably new converts. Some speculate they may have been coming from lives of ritual prostitution in the temples in Ephesus and used in terrible ways.
  • What harm do we see false teachers doing today?
  • V8- Jannes and Jambres are not mentioned in scripture. In Jewish literature of the time, these names are assigned to the magicians who stood against Moses (Exodus 7:8-13, 9:8-12)
  • What was the results of their interference with Moses?
Interpretation
  • In what area of your life could people describe you as a “lover of self?” How has that affected you?
  • Am I more tempted to deal with the surface effect of sin in my life, or am I willing to dig down to the root?
  • Where do you see the “appearance of godliness” in people’s lives today? How about in our own life? What do I do about it when I see it?
  • What encouragement does Paul offer at the end of this passage?
Application (choose several to discuss and do)
  • Am I doing “Christian things” or do I have a true relationship with Christ?
  • How can I reorient my life to focus on Christ, and not the appearance of Christ in my life?
Preparation for next meeting

Read Through 2 Timothy 3:10-17

SUNDAY IS CELEBRATION OF SERVICE DAY: A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS ~ THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!

“Serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul” (Joshua 22:5)

The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching” (1 Timothy 5:17).

This is Clergy Appreciation Month and we want to say “Thank You” to Pastor Kevin, Matt Chouinard and the Elders. We know that leading and counseling, teaching and encouraging can be tough work (especially in these days). So we just wanted to say Thank you. We appreciate all you do to shine the light in a dark world and all you do to give hope and encouragement to all. 

The 8:30am Church Prayer Group will now be held in the Library.

For any Small Groups who would like to have Study Questions to go along with the Fall Series Sermons please let the Office know.

FALL SERMON SERIES  New teaching series for the fall- “This Time Tomorrow”. Paul at the end of his life felt the most important thing he could do was to make sure that his partner and friend Timothy carries on in his place, and made sure that Timothy would teach others. As followers of Jesus, how now shall we live in order to best follow Jesus, and help others do the same? 10/28/18- “This Time Tomorrow I Will Live Consistently- 2 Timothy 3:10-17.

Will they break out of the churches to be his Church – to be, without human force or violence, his mighty force for good on earth, drawing the churches after them toward the eternal purposes of God?” – Dallas Willard .God chose us, ordinary people to make a difference in this world!

This is Clergy Appreciation Month and we want to say “Thank You” to Pastor Kevin, Matt Chouinard and the Elders.

The 8:30am Church Prayer Group will now be held in the Library.

FALL SERMON SERIES  New teaching series for the fall- “This Time Tomorrow”. Paul at the end of his life felt the most important thing he could do was to make sure that his partner and friend Timothy carries on in his place, and made sure that Timothy would teach others. As followers of Jesus, how now shall we live in order to best follow Jesus, and help others do the same?

10/14/18- “This Time Tomorrow I Will Live Integrity- 2 Timothy 2:14-26.

Will they break out of the churches to be his Church – to be, without human force or violence, his mighty force for good on earth, drawing the churches after them toward the eternal purposes of God?” – Dallas Willard .God chose us, ordinary people to make a difference in this world!
