Do you ever struggle with confronting a loved one’s sin? Is God calling you to speak the truth to someone you know?

As Jesus walked through life, his greatest desire was to be obedient to the Father. He confronted sin; but also engaged, loved, and leaned into all kinds of relationships.

We are called as people of integrity to align our emotions, words, and actions in pursuit of a God-honoring life. In this episode, Nicole walks us through 2 Timothy 3:1-5 where we learn that God desires us to be people that bring the gospel not just through our words, but through our actions.

As a reminder, here are the three questions we ask each show:
1. What does the passage say?
2. What's the backstory, what's the context?
3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage?

Today's Scripture:
2 Timothy 3:1-5
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

In this series, we're going to walk through the idea that Jesus is the teacher, and his classroom is your life. Your experiences, your struggles, and joys, all of that is the living stuff that Jesus uses to teach you about himself and the kingdom of God.
