2 Timothy 4: 1-5: “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom; Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long-suffering
and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” The foundation of any ministry is God’s word. Preaching God’s truth is a sacred and demanding task, requiring perseverance and courage. Be ready means to ‘take a stand.’ People ‘turn their ears’ to avoid truth. True spiritual growth occurs over a period of time, through consistent teaching and application of God’s Word.
