Sunday Sermon Outline: 2 Timothy 4

Staying Effective in Adversity 
“Depending Fully on the Lord”
2 Timothy 4

I.  Dealing with Others vs. 1-2 
     “I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: [2] preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.” 

     A. Preach v. 2 

     B. Prepare v. 2 

     C. Correct v. 2 

     D. Warn v. 2 

     E. Encourage v. 2 

II. Dealing with Yourself vs. 3-5 
   “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, [4] and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. [5] But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” 

     A. Focus v. 5 

     B. Persevere v. 5 

     C. Prioritize v. 5 

     D. Execute v. 5 

III. Dealing with Your Work vs. 6-18 

     A. Real Love vs. 6-15 
     “For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. [7] I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; [8] in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing. [9] Make every effort to come to me soon; [10] for Demas, having loved this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica; Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia. [11] Only Luke is with me. Pick up Mark and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for service. [12] But Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus. [13] When you come bring the cloak which I left at Troas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments. [14] Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. [15] Be on guard against him yourself, for he vigorously opposed our teaching.” 

     B. Real Security vs. 16-18 
     “At my first defense no one supported me, but all deserted me; may it not be counted against them. [17] But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that through me the proclamation might be fully accomplished, and that all the Gentiles might hear; and I was rescued out of the lion's mouth. [18] The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed, and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom; to Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.” 

Conclusion: vs. 19-22, “Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus. [20] Erastus remained at Corinth, but Trophimus I left sick at Miletus. [21] Make every effort to come before winter. Eubulus greets you, also Pudens and Linus and Claudia and all the brethren. [22] The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you.”
