Pastor Lloyd begins this message by zeroing in on Satan's most effective weapon against the Believer, and that is discouragement. In this epistle, Paul encourages his young protege who also faced discouragement. Sometimes in our own walk, rather than seeking something new, we simply need to remember the basic, essential truths to find the encouragement we need. Do you wonder if you are approved by God? How can you know? Be a worker who rightly divides the word of truth; feast daily on God's word; don't wrangle over empty words and chatter; don't worry about people's opinions. These only distract and discourage us from important, eternal things.
