‘Demas has forsaken me, loving this present world’

October 23, 2010
By Pastor Stephen W. Pyle, Elkins Church of God of Prophecy

"For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world and is departed into Thessalonica." (2 Timothy 4:10a) Paul was writing under Holy Spirit inspiration to his young protege Timothy and to 'us' concerning his soon departure. He was sentenced to death by Roman Emperor Nero and then martyred for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Christ felt alone while his disciples scattered during time of trial and crucifixion. This apostle now felt humanly abandoned but yet, comforted from the Lord.
