What Do you want to be ?

2 Tim 2:21-23
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

Do you want to be used of God

I. Flee
A.Youthfull Lust
1 Peter 2:11
11Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

B. Fornication

1 Cor 6:16-20
16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that commiteth fornication sinneth against his own body.
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

C. Idolatry
1 Cor 10:14
14Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
KJV

II. Follow
1 Righteousness, Rightwitness
2 Faith With out faith it is impossible to please God
3 Charity Love one another
4 Peace Heb 12:14-15
5 Godly Christian with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Call on the Lord out of a pure heart
Prov 15:8-9
8The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
9The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness
KJV
To not live in Gilt
1 Tim 1:5
5Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:


III Avoid
But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
Things that keep you from do the things you need to do.

1 Tim 1:4
4Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
KJV
the Bible not tradition
1 Tim 4:7-8
7But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

2 Tim 2:24-26
24And the servant of the Lord must not strive; (fight go to war)
but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,

25In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
KJV
