The Lord Stood by Me
Transcript of The Lord Stood by Me
"Do your best to come to me quickly, for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me and has gone to Thessalonica."
2 Timothy 2:9-10
Laying Hold of
"Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia. Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, because he is helpful to me in my ministry. I sent Tychicus to Ephesus. When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, and my scrolls, especially the parchments. Alexander the metalworker did me a great deal of harm. The Lord will repay him for what he has done. You too should be on your guard against him, because he strongly opposed our message."
2 Timothy 4:10-15
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo,
I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
The Lord Stood by Me
"Greet Priscilla and Aquila and the household of Onesiphorus. Erastus stayed in Corinth, and I left Trophimus sick in Miletus. Do your best to get here before winter. Eubulus greets you, and so do Pudens, Linus, Claudia and all the brothers.
The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you."
2 Timothy 4:19-22
Grace, Grace, Grace
"Luke, the beloved physician, sends you his greetings, and also Demas."
"Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, greets you, as do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, Luke, my fellow workers."
"I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now there is in store 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 longed for His appearing."
2 Timothy 4:7-8
"I press on so that I may lay hold of that
for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus."
"I will tell you what tragedy is. I will show you how to waste your life. Consider a story from the February 1998 edition of Readers’s Digest, which tells about a couple who ‘took early retirement from their jobs in the Northeast five years ago when he was 59 and she was 51. Now they live in Punta Gorda, Florida, where they cruise on their 30 foot trawler, play softball and collect shells.” At first, when I read it I thought it might be a joke. A spoof on the American Dream. But it wasn’t. Tragically, this was the dream: Come to the end of your life—your one and only precious, God-given life—and let the last great work of your life, before you give an account to your Creator, be this: playing softball and collecting shells. Picture them before Christ at the great day of judgment: ‘Look, Lord. See my shells.’ That is a tragedy. And people today are spending billions of dollars to persuade you to embrace that tragic dream. Over against that, I put my protest: Don’t buy it. Don’t waste your life.”
"But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God."
"Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.'"
"We cannot ignore inconsiderate acts in others; yet we cannot execute the penalty of the law. We have no right to complete the moral cycle…. Although we sense no spiritual inhibition against crying out against justice,
the purity of moral life deteriorates the moment we attempt to administer justice."
"At my first defense, no one came to my support, but everyone deserted me. May it not be held against them. But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion's mouth. The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen."
2 Timothy 4:16-18
"The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, 'Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem,
so you must also testify in Rome.'"
"Now you followed …persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me!"
2 Timothy 3:10-11
"...we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted,
but not forsaken...
2 Corinthians 4:8-9
"Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, 'For your sake we are being put to death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.' But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
"For of His fullness we have all received,
and grace upon grace."
"And God is able to make all grace abound to you,
so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed
…. ...This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God."
2 Corinthians 9:8, 12
