2 Timothy 4:1-5
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:
preach the word;
be ready in season and out of season;
reprove, rebuke, and exhort,
with complete patience and teaching.
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,
and will turn away from listening to the truth
and wander off into myths.
As for you,
always be sober-minded,
do the work of an evangelist,
fulfill your ministry.
God gave me 4 opportunities to preach the Word thus far in 2012:

I am also scheduled to preach the last Sunday of this year; O Lord, please guide me and help me to preach your Word and not mine.
