In 2 TIMOTHY 2:22 Paul says to Timothy, a young believer who had a call of God on his life to RUN away from youthful lusts. Young people today are continuously being bombarded with temptations, worldly desires and evil thoughts that are being offered by the world. This causes them to compromise and fall into sin. But God is challenging us to RUN away from the things that take us away from His plan and purposes. God is raising up a generation like Joseph. A generation that’ll take a stand for God and RUN away from every temptation.
Paul also told Timothy to pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace. As we RUN away from evil, we run towards God and pursue His holiness, His faith, His love and His peace.
Finally, Paul says to RUN ”with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” We need to surround ourselves with people who are likeminded in faith, who will encourage us and who will help us in our walk with God.
Get ready to RUN.
