In this topical sermon, we consider the topic of apostasy due to a love and cherishing of this present world. We are chilled by the apostasy of Demas, who abandoned Paul, but was once called a fellow laborer of his. This tells us that worldliness can run deep and be undetected unless we check our heart to see if the world has exerted itself over Christ in our heart. We also find the remedy to worldliness in this text - which is to love the appearing of Jesus Christ. We are called to both mortify our love for the world and to inflame our love for Christ that we would be able to run the race well as Paul did and not fall into apostasy as Demas did. Preached Sabbath PM on 11/21/21 from 2 Timothy 4:10.
