Preach the Word
2Ti 4:1 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom:
2Ti 4:2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.
2Ti 4:3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,
2Ti 4:4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.
2Ti 4:5 As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

In Verse 2:
STEP 1: Reprove…
To reprove in context means to bring conviction by exposing what they say. This is done by showing them what the Bible says.
STEP 2: Rebuke…
To rebuke in context means to censure severely, to admonish or charge sharply. This comes after reproving someone for their error. This is a time, if necessary, to warn someone of the results of their false teaching(s).
STEP 3: Exhort…
To exhort can have several meanings based on the use of this Greek work and the meaning will also be based on the context of YOUR encounter with someone’s misunderstood or false teaching.
Possible Meanings:
1. We may been to beg, entreat, beseech a person (one definition of this Greek word.
2. We may need to console, to encourage and strengthen by consolation, to comfort.

Always remember that when we argue, we almost always fail but when we show people from the Bible the clear teaching of God, it’s no longer our opinion but God’s. We can do these steps calmly.

Oops. Typo “1. We may been to beg” … should have said, “… may need to beg…”
