In his second letter, Paul warned Timothy the last days will be difficult times because the values of people will be distorted by the world (vv. 1-9). He exhorted Timothy to avoid such foolish people (v. 5b) but instead uphold what he has learned and firmly believed in the scriptures (vv. 10-15). Paul declared God’s Word is of divine origin and beneficial in equipping believers to fulfill God’s purposes in their lives (vv. 16-17). Jesus Christ said, "I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). God’s Word was the foundation in which GCF Calgary was laid 7 years ago. As you move forward with one heart and one purpose, may you keep God’s Word as your one foundation.
