Basic Outline for “Lessons from Demas”

Here’s my basic outline from my sermon yesterday morning:

Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, greets you, as do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, Luke, my fellow laborers.” (Philemon vs. 23-24)

Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you.” (Colossians 4:14)

Be diligent to come to me quickly; for Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and has departed for Thessalonica—Crescens for Galatia, Titus for Dalmatia.” (2 Timothy 4:9-10)

Lesson #1 from Demas – Don’t ever think you can’t be a Demas (1 Corinthians 10:12)

Lesson #2 from Demas – Don’t let down your spiritual guard (Hebrews 2:1)

Lesson #3 from Demas – If all we’re looking for out of life is “Thessalonica” then “Thessalonica” is all we’re going to get (Hebrews 11:24-26)

Lesson #4 from Demas – When someone leaves, don’t stick your head in the sand (Galatians 6:1-2)

If you find it useful, use it to God’s glory!
