I. Introduction:

A. It is important to realize what/who is stable during times of instability (Jeremiah 9:12-24).

  1. Our anchor is clearly the hope we have in Christ (Hebrews 6:19-20).
  2. The certainty in Christ is important, because we don’t know what tomorrow holds or if it will even come (James 4:13-17).
B. In one way, there is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
  1. However, that which has been, regarding human behavior, was promised to go from bad to worse even in the first century (II Timothy 3:1-13).
  2. What the inspired Apostle told Timothy, regarding that message, was to continue in what he learned (II Timothy 3:14-17).
  3. Timothy, as well as we, can do that because the changes we see in the world do not effect the constant we have in the truth (Mark 13:31).
  4. We concluded the sermon last week reading II Timothy 2:8-18. The statement following were we left off is the base for our lesson this week.

II. Body: II Timothy 2:19

A. Let’s think about the foundation of God we are speaking of (Isaiah 28:16; cf. Acts 4:10-12).
  1. We stand upon that foundation by being doers of the word (Luke 6:43-49; cf. James 1:21-27).
  2. Christ is part of that foundation (I Corinthians 3:9-11).
  3. The Apostles and prophets are part of that foundation (Ephesians 2:19-20).
B. The kingdom, body, the church; is built upon that foundation (Matthew 16:13-19).
  1. So we can be sure that the kingdom; the church will stand (Hebrews 12:22-29).
  2. Don’t let the rampant apostasy in the world shake us, for there has always been a remnant (Romans 11:1-5).
  3. Just remember, that remnant can be very small (Isaiah 1:9).
C. When we adopt the confidence of the foundation we are built upon (Psalms 62:1-12).
  1. His way being our strength (Proverbs 10:29-30).
  2. Growing up to aright so that we never fall (II Peter 1:3-11).

III. Conclusion: Being built on that solid foundation (I Corinthians 3:9-10), we have to stay solid ourselves (I Corinthians 15:57-58).
