Demas

"Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me: For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica;" II Timothy 4:9-10

What a wonderful opportunity and a divine calling for Demas to have been a part of the missionary group with Apostle Paul, a man whose conversion rocked the very foundations of the Jewish religion and changed forever the world of the Gentiles.

It is reasonable to conclude that Demas deserted the Apostle for reasons related to enticements of the civilization that was around him.  At some point, he must have claimed his faith but failed to practice his faith in this present world. He apparently traded self-sacrifice, humility, enthusiasm for lost souls, and esteem of the Gospel for his love of this present world. What a sad commentary on the life of one who must have started out with great resolve and purpose only to be drawn away by his own appetite for this present world.
