We live in a thirsty world. A popular song by Bruce Springsteen said, everybody’s got a hungry heart. Everybody’s got a thirsty heart too. Spiritual thirst is a universal human condition. We are born with a thirst for something that this world just can’t ever seem to quench.

Paul opens with a charge to Timothy to confront certain people that are spreading false teaching. Paul now looks back in time twenty years to his own salvation event.
