    When people do not want to hear sound doctrine and hears are itching to call wrong right and right wrong. Preach the word. When your life is out of sink Timothy and you don't understand Preach the unadulterated word of God. Even if you are on your sick bed or in your own personal prison. Preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Do not look at the faces of Others but set your face like a flint and preach

    Paul has instructed this young pastor to be instant in preaching the word in Season and out of Season ... Paul's instruction to Timothy is to not change his preaching to stay up with the times that are bound to change ... People change, fads change, the seasons change but the word of God endureth forever ... Preach the same truth, stand on it , hold to it even when the world turns on you !
