Useful to the Master - Part 2

WISE CORRECTION           Page 5

V.26 ** As we gently and humbly proclaim the truth of God's word in the face of error, what "may" happen?

God "may" allow them to "come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil..."

** What does that say about Satan's influence upon the unsaved and their ability to understand God's truth?

It is Satan's snare that blinds men's eyes or causes their ears to go deaf to the voice of God.
All see -

2Corinthians 4:3-4 "...the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving..."

Ephesians 2:1-2 "...you formerly walked... according to the prince of the power of the air..."

1John 5:19 "...the whole world lies in the power of the evil one..."

** Now back in 2Timothy 2:26, why does Satan want to keep the unsaved as his captive?

"...to do his will."

** Do you remember from last week how Satan was described in John 8:44?

He is both a liar and the father of lies! It is of no wonder that false teachers reject the truth and spread Satanic lies since they are "held captive" to do his will, which is to lie.

** Is there hope for these individuals to hear the truth in us and come to their senses?

Absolutely, as powerful as Satan is, He who is in us is infinitely more powerful! cf. 1John 4:4

EXTRICATE

** From verse 21 of this passage, what were the three attributes of someone who is a vessel of honor?

1) sanctified
2) useful to the Master
3) prepared for every good work - "eager"
