YMC07 #3 - Get into shape

Steve's second talk was from 2 Timothy 3:1-17. Another engaging and scripture-rich talk.

INTRO - Steve told a funny story about meeting Goran Ivanišević 3 times. As a result Steve was influenced by Goran to play tennis. We are all influenced by something...

1A) LEADERS SHAPED BY SELF (2 Tim 3:2-5) these people who are lovers of themselves instead of lovers of God aren't just some randoms. They are actually people who appear to be Christian leaders.

1B) THE EXAMPLE OF LEADERS SHAPED BY SELF (2 Tim 3:6-9) these are fake leaders with a fake gospel. They gain control over weak-willed women and, like Jannes and Jambres, they oppose the truth.

2A) THE EXAMPLE OF PAUL (2 Tim 3:10-15) Paul is a great example to Timothy and us. Being an example: a great way to learn; and a great way to teach.

2B) LEADERS SHAPED BY SCRIPTURE (2 Tim 3:14-17) There's nothing more important than having our lives shaped by the scriptures. The scriptures: make us wise for salvation; are breathed out by God; and are useful.

We were challenged to reflect on what influences us... the world or the scriptures?

    Great passage of scripture.
    And helpful breakdown too.

    And to reflect on scripture being our influence... When we consider all that we are made up of, how central is scripture? How much of our lives is based on scripture.
