I have a talk in the Thursday night Christian Life and Ministry Meeting next week.

My material is from the "Good News From God" brochure, pp 24,25, as follows:

Drawing close to God is not easy because we live among people who lack faith in God and ridicule his promise of peace on earth. (2 Timothy 3:1, 4; 2 Peter 3:3, 13) So we need the encouraging association of fellow believers, and they need us.Read Hebrews 10:24, 25.
Associating with people who love God helps us to draw close to God. The meetings of Jehovah’s Witnesses provide fine opportunities to benefit from the faith of others.Read Romans 1:11, 12

My setting is:  Return Visit: fg lesson 12 ¶4-5—Demonstrate how to make a return visit on someone who accepted the convention invitation. Lay the groundwork for the next visit. (4 min. or less).  

And my helper is Jean.  We plan to get together Friday afternoon to hammer it out. 
The verses of Scripture I am to choose from are as follows:
(2 Timothy 3:1) "But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here."
(2 Timothy 3:4) "betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,"
(2 Peter 3:3) "First of all know this, that in the last days ridiculers will come with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires"

(2 Peter 3:13) "But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell".

(Romans 1:11, 12) "For I am longing to see you, that I may impart some spiritual gift to you for you to be made firm;  or, rather, that we may have an interchange of encouragement by one another’s faith, both yours and mine."

(Hebrews 10:24, 25) "And let us consider one another so as to incite to love and fine works,  not forsaking our meeting together, as some have the custom, but encouraging one another, and all the more so as you see the day drawing near."

Jean and I will have to decide which verses to build our talk around.
