2 Timothy 4:3 For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.
I would say the time is even now upon us for people not to listen to wholesome teaching. People do not want to hear the truth of the Word of God. They want watered down Christianity that makes them feel better about themselves and how they are living their lives. They want the touchy, feely, it’s okay if I’m sinning, God still loves me anyway sort of teaching. The reality is, God does still love you. The other reality is, if you are living like you are going to hell, you may very well be. When we seek to follow our own desires outside the will of God, and they go against His principles we are making the blood of Jesus of non-effect in our lives.
It is God’s desire that we walk, live, and conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of Him, desiring to please Him in all things and bearing fruit in every good work. His desire is that we seek to walk in His will and His way so that He might fulfill His perfect plan and purpose in our lives. His desire is for us to seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness so He can freely give us all other things. God wants to give us an abundant life, be we need to be willing to hear the truth of His word and heed it as well.
Holy Father, please give us open eyes, ears, hearts, and minds to receive the truth of Your word. Help us not to seek out a watered- down version of your plan for our lives, in the name of Jesus.
