Verse of the Week #8 ( II Timothy 2:22)

Today's verse of the week comes from the book of II Timothy. 

"Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart." II Timothy 2:22 (NKJV)

This is a simple verse, reminding us of some of the fundamentals to a christian life: the absence of evil desires, righteousness, faith, love, and peace. It also reminds to be at peace with others who call on the Lord with a "pure heart". It does not mention wether or not they believe the same doctrines, act the same way, or have the same convictions. But if the call on the Lord with a "pure heart", we should be at peace with them. 

Personally, I can think of many who call on the Lord out of a pure heart, yet I could very easily create problems with. When I had read this verse a while back, it convicted me. This verse should have an impact on all of us!
